RESEARCH AND THE SOCIAL SCIENCES* 

By Mrs. Lillian Symes 



In talking- to you about the uses of 
research, I am going to be more specific 
than your announcement indicates and 
instead of speaking on research in gen- 
eral, I shall confine myself largely to 
research in the social sciences. One rea- 
son for this is that it would take an 
encyclopedic mind to do justice to the 
subject of research in all the sciences 
and another is that at this particular 
moment in the history of the world, the 
problems of social science happen to be 
the most important ones confronting us. 
Indeed they are so important that it is 
doubtful that whatever progress is made 
in other fields can bring any widespread 
benefit to the world until these social 
difficulties are settled in some fashion. 
The fruits of research in other fields 
are rendered sterile so long as we fail 
to apply those of this particular field. 
What use, for example, is the develop- 
ment of labor-saving mechanical devices 
to ten million unemployed and to many 
millions more threatened with unemploy- 
ment? And why spend millions of dol- 
lars on medical research in the problems 
of malnutrition, tuberculosis, etc., so long 
as we continue to develop and tolerate 
conditions which manufacture these evils 
on a wholesale scale? The primary job 
of the world right now is to set its social 
and economic house in order. 

It would seem almost unnecessary to 
emphasize this fact at this time. There 
is probably not one of us here whose life 
has not been touched in some way by our 
present social and economic breakdown. 
Even those of you who are civil service 
employees and who therefore seem to 
possess a somewhat greater degree of 
security than the average worker in 
private business know what is happening 
to other people. And while you may not 
be apprehensive about your own particu- 
lar position, Chicago has shown that in 
a time of prolonged economic chaos, no 
one is really safe. 



There is another reason why a consid- 
eration of research in the social sciences 
is particularly urgent now. It is in the 
social sciences that there has been the 
widest gap between research and applica- 
tion. It is here that the scientific method 
has apparently fallen down most dis- 
mally. It is almost the only group of 
sciences in which the business of apply- 
ing tO' daily life what we have already 
found out encounters an almost insur- 
mountable barrier. 

I am aware, of course, that the research 
specialist in other fields will insist that 
his own profession is not without its 
inconsistencies, difficulties and downright 
dishonesties. If any of you have read 
that belligerent book, The Degradation 
of Science by T. Swann Harding, you 
will realize to what extent all the sciences 
have been seduced by what Mr. Harding 
has called "the profit motive" ; how 
doctors endorse yeast for indigestion, 
scientists lend their support to worthless 
toothpastes and mouthwashes, chemists 
to the glorification of other private enter- 
prises, and how effective research is 
iften hamstrung because it may interfere 
with private profit. I do not know 
enough about the physical sciences, gen- 
erally, to judge the accuracy of all Mr. 
Harding's charges, though I suspect many 
of them are correct. But I do know that 
ill his chapter on the social sciences, the 
author knows his subject. And I am 
certain that it is in this field that there 
is the widest divergence between knowl- 
edge and practice. There are obvious 
reasons why this should be so. It is in 
this field that private interests conflict 
most frequently with social interests. 

There is opportunism and individual 
dishonesty in all the sciences, perhaps, 
but in no other do you find this very 
fundamental conflict — a conflict which 
is not a matter of dishonesty and delib- 
erate bad intention, but an inevitable 
outcome of our social organization. In

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



[Jan., 1933 



medicine, for example, there is no serious 
conflict in interest between tlie physical 
well-being of society in general and that 
of a certain small section of society. 
If an infantile paralysis or typhoid epi- 
demic threatens, it is to the common 
interest of the whole community that 
cases be isolated, preventive measures be 
applied, that the epidemic be stopped. 
It is to the common social interest that 
everyone he vaccinated against smallpox, 
that our water supply be pure, our health 
administration effective. It is to the com- 
mon interest that every possible finding 
of medical research be applied to these 
situations as quickly as possible even 
though their application may cause some 
discomfort or pain to a few individuals. 
But when we turn to the social sciences 
— to economics, sociology, politics — we 
see an entirely different picture. It is 
decidedly not to the interest of certain 
sections of the public that the unbiased 
findings of social research be used to heal 
many of the evils of our social organism. 
We see not one interest, but a mass of 
conflicting interests. From the long his- 
toric viewpoint, from the viewpoint of the 
disinterested philosopher, the ultimate 
interests of all of these groups may be 
really identical. The philosopher who 
looks down at the world from above the 
battle, can readily see that it would be 
better for everyone concerned in the long 
run to introduce some kind of order into 
our social life, even at the price of certain 
immediate sacrifices. But few people 
look upon the world from this disinter- 
ested viewpoint. Most people are moti- 
vated by their individual and class 
interests now, and they are apt to identify 
the common social interest with their 
own desires and prejudices. To the poli- 
tician the welfare of the nation is bound 
up with the success of his own political 
party ; to the ship builders and the steel 
trust stockholders the peace of the world 
can only be maintained by building big- 
ger and better battleships ; to the textile 
manufacturer in the south the prosperity 
of the nation can only be maintained on 
the basis of cheap and docile labor — 
preferably child labor — and it is utterly 
use-less for any economist to point out 
to him that in an era of mass produc- 
tion, the smaller the wages the smaller 
the buying power of a community, and 



the smaller the buying power the more 
inevitable such periods of so-called over- 
production as we are now suffering from. 
To many manufacturers, prosperity is 
identical with high tariff walls and it is 
useless to prove to them that high tariff 
walls in such a period as this must inevi- 
tably wreck the balance of international 
trade. 

Research in all these fields has already 
shown that the assumptions upon which 
these people operate are false, that they 
are definitely unscientific — because while 
they may redound to the temporary bene- 
fit of a few, they are ultimately harmful 
;o society as a whole. But the social 
scientist who proclaims this fact makes 
no impression upon the groups involved 
because they are not concerned with 
society as a whole. If he attempts to 
carry his case to the people who have 
no vested interest in these economic mis- 
takes, the only medium which he can use 
is the press ; and the press, as a rule, is 
controlled by one or another of those 
vested interests which would be injured 
by the application of scientific principles. 

I have gone into this matter of con- 
flicting interests at length, in the begin- 
ning, in order to emphasize that it is in 
the social sciences that those interested 
in the effective uses of research are up 
against the most urgent problem. In 
fact, . it is almost in this field alone that 
any real problem exists, because once 
the battle for social sanity and scientific 
reconstruction is won here, the minor 
difficulties of application encountered in 
the other sciences would take care of 
themselves. 

Having emphasized this fact, I want 
to go on to a more general discussion of 
social research, what it has done, what is 
wrong with it and what can be done 
about it. And this last will have some 
bearing upon your work as librarians. 
For all the deficiencies in this field can 
not be blamed upon outside factors and 
public stupidity. Much of it is due to 
professional stupidity, to the limitations 
of the scientific method itself and to other 
internal evils which I shall deal with 
presently. 

As most of you know, the application 
of the scientific method to the social 
sciences is a comparatively recent devel- 
opment. The objective method which 



vol. 28, no. 1] RESEARCH AND THE SOCIAL SCIENCES 



involved patieut, deliberative research 
into existing facts and phenomena and 
vphich based its conclusions only upon 
the data revealed by such research, gained 
its tremendous prestige in the physical 
and mathematical sciences. Most of our 
extraordinary mechanical, medical and 
physical progress generally during the 
past seventy-five years has been due to 
this method. In these sciences there 
is no other sound method of procedure. 
Physical phenomena are not tempera- 
mental. A combination of two chemicals 
will not give one result today and an- 
other tomorrow. Light do«s not travel at 
a given rate of speed this week and at 
another next week. Science no longer 
has to depend for its progress upon the 
inspired guesses of an isolated experi- 
menter, half blindly tiding to prove what 
he has already surmised. It is able to 
depend upon a large and growing body of 
trained fact finders for a rapidly widen- 
ing knowledge of all the secrets of our 
physical world. One man can build with 
the utmost confidence upon the researches 
of another because those researches are 
capable of experimental verification. 
Because of this, physical science has 
become a vast cooperative enterprise to 
which thousands of individuals have con- 
tributed the best they have to give and 
the results have become so striking that 
the words science and progress have 
become almost synonymous. 

The American people are essentially a 
pragmatic people. Our first question in 
regard to any movement, any system of 
thought or action is not — "Is it true?", 
"Is it right?", but "Will it work?" 
And certainly the scientific method has 
worked beautifully in those fields to which 
it was applied. What more natural than 
that it should work in the still more 
troublesome fields of economic and social 
affairs — of industry, politics and law? 
It is not at all surprising that the United 
States became the cradle of the objective 
method in these fields. Social science 
became the process of "finding out the 
laws of social phenomena and then apply- 
ing them to social reform." All that was 
needed, so it was thought, was patient 
observation and the collection of sufficient 
case material. The social scientists 
paraphrased the ethical platitude "To 
know all is to forgive all," with "To 



know all is to remedy all." Recently we 
have begun to find out that we know 
plenty but that we have remedied nothing. 
A whole new profession came into 
being based on this assumption, a profes- 
sion that has divided itself into an almost 
infinite number of specialties. Research 
became the watchword of the hour. 
Sociology and economics departments 
burst into full bloom in all our univer- 
sities and colleges and turned out thou- 
sands of B.A.s, M.A.s and Ph.D.s who 
had earned their degrees by patient 
research into some one infinitesimal 
aspect of the social structure. Their 
knowledge was, as a rule, totally unre- 
lated to the whole social problem and 
many of them were unable to think in 
terms of that whole problem. But they 
did know how to collect facts. Practi- 
cally every organization in the country — 
charitable, social, political or educational 
— began to feel that in order to justify its 
existence and put itself on the new 
scientific basis, it too must make surveys 
and investigations in the field in which it 
functioned. Public spirited millionaires 
endowed enormous foundations for in- 
quiry into social and industrial problems 
— usually into aspects of those problems 
which had no relation to the particular 
way in which the millionaire had made 
his money. Much of the research, both 
in colleges and foundations, thus sub- 
sidized was nothing more than research 
in the problems of business enterprise. 
That is, its purpose was to discover how 
trade and industry could function more 
economically and effectively for the profit 
of their owners — how greater efficiency 
might be introduced, turnover cut down, 
slumps ironed out, etc. In short, much 
of it was not disinterested effort to 
solve our social difficulties in terms of 
general public welfare but was merely 
laboratory work in behalf of capitalis- 
tic efficiency. But whatever its purpose, 
millions of facts were gathered, millions 
of causes and effects noted, many of the 
laws of social phenomena were discovered 
and if they were not applied to reform 
on any great scale, this was not the fault 
of the researchers. Where it was profit- 
able to apply them, where their applica- 
tion did not tread too heavily upon the 
toes of any intrenched interest, they were 
applied. When their implications were 



NEWS NO*Eg OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES f Jan., 1933 



too revolutionary to be put into effect 
without causing considerable pain to 
some such interest, they were merely 
filed. Someone has said that American 
sociology is more heavily endowed than 
that of any other country and is intellec- 
tually of the lowest calibex-. I am in- 
clined to agree with that statement. It is 
possible that it is because it is so heavily 
endowed that its intellectual caliber is 
so low. The sources of its endowment 
are one of the sources of its timidity. 
The court troubadour or painter of feudal 
days did not sing of the misdeeds of the 
king or baron who supported him, or 
paint a portrait that revealed the warts 
on the lordly nose. He had to reserve 
his realism for other subjects. 

I was once employed in industrial re- 
search for an organization that had made 
a number of very valuable investiga- 
tions into labor conditions in certain 
industries. Some of these investigations 
had resulted in the passage of state laws 
dealing with those conditions and in- 
troducing necessary reforms. I was 
called into a Board meeting on one 
occasion when the year's program was 
being planned and asked to suggest pos- 
sible surveys for that year. It happened 
that the canning industry in that state 
was in a very bad way. There was much 
child labor, women were overworked for 
long hours, sanitary conditions were bad 
and the industry generally needed clean- 
ing up. I recommended that we make a 
survey of it. I felt a certain frigidity in 
the atmosphere of the room immediately. 
Someone else suggested another subject 
and it was adopted unanimously. Lfater 
I discovered that a member of our Board 
and one of our heaviest contributors was 
a large stockholder in the state's biggest 
canning company. He was a sincere 
person who could become quite indignant 
over labor conditions in other fields. 

You can readily see how such situa- 
tions as these can operate to render 
industrial and social research ineffective 
in the very places where it is most 
needed. But, you may ask, what about 
public and governmental agencies which 
have no ax to grind and whose function 
is the service of the public and the guid- 
ance of public officials? The United 
States Government is the largest research 
institution in the world and in some of 



its departments its research is effective. 
There is no question about the practical 
application of the work done in our 
Department of Agriculture, for example. 
Facts here are not only found, they are 
applied. Facts are also found most 
effectively in our Departments of Labor 
and of Commerce, but they are less fre- 
quently applied. For here you are deal- 
ing with aspects of our social machine 
and in dealing with it, you are running 
headlong into the familiar situation of 
conflicting social interests. Not all of 
the researches of these departments touch 
this conflict, to be sure, or they may 
touch it at a point where the necessary 
changes are not serious enough to arouse 
opposition. More often, however, they 
strike at too vital a spot. Someone 
would lose money if something were 
done about it. Therefore nothing is done. 

For example, social work experts have 
worked out with fairly scientific accu- 
racy the minimum yearly income on which 
a family of five can be furnished with 
the health necessities of life — not a lux- 
ury budget but a health budget. This was 
an excellent piece of research. But our 
Bureau of Labor Statistics researches 
reveal the fact that the average family 
income of workers in our sixteen major 
industries is only a little more than half 
this necessary minimum. Here, you 
might think, is something to get excited 
about. Because these are not depression 
figures. The studies were made during 
the boom decade. And if large numbers 
ol our working class must exist below 
the health level during periods of pros- 
perity while more than 500 persons are 
receiving incomes of over a million a year, 
something is seriously wrong. But that 
wrong can not be righted without cutting 
profits. And profits are sacred. 

Let me give another example of the 
inconsistency and lack of coordination 
in this field. A year ago I made for 
the Federal Children's Bureau a study 
of the effect of unemployment on child 
welfare in various communities. The 
effects were of course what one might 
expect. I have no desire to harrow your 
feelings and I won't go into details here. 
To the average well-fed person in a state 
like California they would seem quite 
incredible. The report has been read 
in the White House and other official 



vol. 28, no. 1] RESEARCH AND THE SOCIAL SCIENCES 



circles. And yet, this last May Day as 
on numerous May Days past, we had our 
yearly Child Health celebration and 
broadcasted to mothers throughout the 
nation, by radio, pamphlets, sermons and 
newspaper articles, the results of the 
best medical and psychiatric researches 
on the subject of child health. We have 
insisted to millions of mothers who are 
trying to feed their families on relief 
grants of two dollars a week, or trying to 
make two days wages do the work of six, 
that their children should have orange 
or tomato juice daily, that every child 
must have a quart of milk a day and 
that nothing should ever be said or done 
in a household to disturb a child's sense 
of physical and emotional security. We 
tell them that their children are the 
hope and pride of the nation ; and we see 
no inconsistency in all this. 

As I have said before, research long 
ago became a fetish in the United States 
and no other country in the world has 
investigated its problems so intensively 
and expensively as we have. We name 
investigating committees on the slightest 
provocation and they in turn hire learned 
experts and specialists and statisticians. 
Then we file their reports and go right 
ahead on the self-same basis that these 
experts have pointed out to be socially 
suicidal. There is scarcely a single eco- 
nomic difficulty from which we are suffer- 
ing now that has not been the subject of 
definite recommendations from established 
economists. When the present tariff law 
was pending in Congress, they told us 
what it would do to our international 
trade. And now the damage has been 
done. We have been investigating the 
coal industry for 25 years and we have 
known that it was going to the dogs. 
But we have done nothing to meet the 
situation. These are jobs which call for 
statesmanship, for applied intelligence of 
the highest order, jobs which only the 
Federal Government is capable of han- 
dling. We fed whole populations during 
the World War, we helped to reconstruct 
the war-torn areas of France, we trans- 
ported large populations in Greece and 
the Balkans and set them up on some 
basis of self-support. But we permit 
our own people to starve while politicians 
argue over nonessentials. 

It is obvious that we can not look to 



the politicians, the business leadei-s or 
the financiers to lead us out of our 
economic wilderness. We are in a 
desperate tangle of social and eco- 
nomic forces which none of them under- 
stand. Perhaps our only hope lies with 
the social scientist, with the technical 
expert who also has some social vision, 
with the men and women who are more 
concerned with making this a sane, liv- 
able and workable world than a merely 
profitable one. However, such men and 
women are not plentiful and the special- 
ized scientist, the isolated research worker 
is not equipped for the task. This 
brings me to another aspect of our social 
ineffectiveness — to the interior reasons 
for the failure of social research, inherent 
in their own practice. The secret lies 
in a remark made by Dr. Benjamin 
Guinzberg in a recent book review when 
he said concerning social research in 
this country : "Millions for research, but 
not one cent for philosophy." 

In a country in which sociological re- 
search is more heavily endowed than in 
any other, we have practically no social 
philosophers — men who can coordinate all 
this information we have so painfully 
gained and on the basis of it think out 
some comprehensive plan of action. We 
have gathered mountains of data but 
almost no one has had the wits to tell 
us Avhat to do with it. Unless we can 
distil some social wisdom from it, it is 
sheer waste. The crying need of our 
t;ime is not for more information, but 
more coordination of the information we 
already possess. The great mass of 
people know almost nothing of the results 
of research, because these results are 
usually embodied in reports they are 
unable to understand. The findings of 
research economists are brushed aside by 
the politicians because they inevitably 
lead to unwelcome changes. 

What can be done then to make re- 
search in this most important of all 
fields of human activity effective? It 
seems to me that several things are 
necessary. One of these is to call s 
moratorium on our overspecialized fact- 
hunting for the mere sake of degrees that 
goes on in our universities, and that 
uses up valuable energy needed for social 
reconstruction. Next, we need some sort 
of a congress of our best scientific minds 



NEWS NOTES OP CALIFORNIA LIBKARIES 



[Jan., 1933 



— and bj- best, I mean those that are not 
so overspecialized that they are incapaci- 
tated for thinking — to coordinate the 
most important findings which social and 
industrial research have revealed and to 
map out a program of political and in- 
dustrial action on the basis of those 
facts. That program may need to be 
enlarged or modified but it can act as 
a spring-board for future thinking and 
acting. With it, we would know what 
effects might be expected from certain 
causes and we might be able to meet 
our diflBculties with something more effec- 
tive than mystical incantations. 

But even though the social scientists 
are able to develop a program of action 
on the basis of known facts, the politi- 
cians will brush it aside, if it has, and it 
will have, any revolutionary implications. 
Therefore the politicians must be ignored 
and the social scientists must look behind 
them to the people themselves for the 
force and sanction necessary to intro- 
duce order out of chaos. This can only 
be done if the lessons of social science 
are made known to the people as they 
are not known at present. The research 
worker will need to make himself intel- 
ligible to the public and will have to 
devote himself, for the time at least, to 
subjects which have some bearing upon 
vital issues. The social philosopher will 
need to interpret these researches to the 
public in their relation to researches in 
other fields. The people themselves, 
those who are suffering from our present 
insane mismanagement, are the only 
source of power through which a change 
can be brought about and they alone can 
give sanction to the application of science 
to daily living, because it is to their in- 
terest to do so. And so they must know 
the facts. This is where the librarian 
finds a job in the scheme of reconstruc- 
tion. His part in the work may be small 
but is is important. 

The real function of the librarian 
is no more the mere handing out of books 
than the real function of a teacher is that 
of handing out facts from a textbook. 
If it were, our libraries could save money 
by hiring pages to do this work for $12 
a week. There are too many library 
heads now who think that the chief 
requisites of the successful assistant are 
a complacent smile and strong arches. 



And there are too many library assistants 
who think that a pleasing personality 
covers a multitude of stupidities. The 
librarian is, or can be, an educator in 
the realest sense of the word. He or 
she — and this is particularly true in the 
special library — stands between the pub- 
lic and those vast resources of knowledge 
which modern research has opened up. 
The librarian has an opportunity to direct 
the attention of the public to those 
sources of information. He can make it 
easy or difficult for the person who is 
seeking to popularize that information 
for public use, to get what he needs. 
He can make it possible for the public 
that is already tentatively interested to 
develop that interest. But in order to 
do this, he must know something of those 
resources himself — and not only by cata- 
log numbei*. The librarian, and particu- 
larly the special librarian, must be a 
well-read and well-informed person — not 
necessarily a pedant or a walking encyclo- 
I>edia, but a person with some general 
knowledge of the literature dealing with 
the most vital issues of the day. If some 
high school student, club woman, writer 
or member of the general public wants 
to know where the best material may be 
secured on the Five Year Plan, unemploy- 
ment insurance, prohibition in Finland, 
child labor or women in industry, he 
should be able to do something more than 
dump into their laps an assortment of 
books from the 300s classification of the 
Dewey decimal system. Certainly no 
special library can effectively serve its 
patrons that does not keep an up-to-the- 
minute subject catalog in its periodical 
department. 

The librarian can not, of course, force 
culture or information upon a public 
that is looking for Zane Grey, Ethel M. 
Dell or Liberty magazine. But there 
is a growing public that reads the news- 
papers and that is developing at least a 
hazy, layman's interest in current prob- 
lems. Most of these people do not reach 
the special libraries, but the beginning 
student, the journalist, the lecturer, even 
the advertising man, frequently does. 
He can be gratified or driven nearly 
insane, by the availability or othenvise of 
the material he needs, the intelligence 
or lack of intelligence of the librarian. 
He does not expect an expert in charge — 



vol. 28, no. 1] RESEARCH AND THE SOCIAL SCIENCES 



at the salaries now paid — but he has a 
right to expect intelligent cooperation. 
Many of the limitations of our libraries 
at present are due, of course, to inade- 
quate resources but much more could 
be accomplished, even with present re- 
sources if the librarian wauld take more 
seriously the importance of his role in the 
field of adult education. And once he 
realized this importance, he will demand 
and receive a compensation commensurate 
with it. 

Just now the preoccupation of the 
public with social issues is shown in the 
flood of books on these subjects in the 
past two years. Many of them, while 
popular, embody the best conclusions 
of social research. The public will read 
them as it will not read professional 
reports. The librarian can encourage 
this type of reading if he knows himself 
what it is all about. And he had better 
know, because these issues will not down. 
They will arise in every period of crisis. 



We will have to face them before we 
can go much further along the path of 
culture, progress and good will. Scientists 
through the world are recognizing this 
fact. 

Just recently I read in an editorial com- 
ment in the British scientific weekly, "Na- 
ture" — "The unanimity with which some 
forms of deliberate planning of our natu- 
ral resources and of our industrial, if not 
of our social and economic life, has been 
suggested in technical journals of high 
standing * * * is evidence of the 
growing realization that a scientific age 
can only be safe if the powers of science 
are exercised with wisdom." And again — 
"There are all the signs that the age of 
individualism and competition is passing 
and will be succeeded by an age of coop- 
eration and planning on a world scale." 

We can help the coming of that age of 
cooperation and planning only by the in- 
telligent and effective application of those 
truths which honest research has revealed.

The class from the University of Cali- 
fornia School of Librarianship, first and 
second years, was taken to visit the 
library branches throughout the county on 
October 27. There were 48 of the stu- 
dents who took the trip. One of the very 
enjoyable features of the trip this year 
Avas the number of librarians from other 
libraries who went with the group as well 
as the county librarian and members of 
her staff. The visiting librarians were 
Miss Susan Smith, Miss Edith Coulter, 
Miss Sarah McCardle, Miss Clara Dills 
and Miss Stella Huntington. 

Book Week, November 13-19, the Ala- 
meda County Library had a bulletin board 
and poster display at the headquarters 
office in Oakland and at the largest 
branches. On Tuesday, November 15 and 
Wednesday, November 16 visits were 
made to several of the branches and 
schools and also at one P. T. A. group. 
The new books were shown and discussed. 
Mrs. Constance Mitchell of the Sather 
Gate Book Shop accompanied the libra- 
rian on these trips and entertained the 
children and parents by telling stories in 
her usual delightful manner. 

Teachers Institute was held in the Bay 
district November 21-24. Mamy of the 
teachers took advantage of being in Oak-

land to call at the county library to make 
selections of books and other material for 
their work. 

The head of the branch department is 
making an intensive survey of the 
branches this year as to the size of the 
book collection and circulation. The 
branches are being visited and books that 
are not being circulated are withdrawn. 
In some places the plan is to keep a 
smaller but more active collection from 
now on. The book fund is smaller this 
year so fewer new books are being pur- 
chased. The custodians are asked to keep 
a close check on the new books sent them. 
As soon as there is a lull in the demand 
for a book, it is to be returned to the 
central ofiice and sent out to another 
branch immediately and so in this way we 
try to have each branch keep a few of the 
new books on hand all the time.

Jane I. Curtis, Lib'n. 

$33,128 was allowed by the Coumcil for 
the ensuing year. This is $500 less than 
the amount requested. 

The annual award of book prizes to the 
pupils of the gi-ade schools has been dis- 
continued. This award has always been 
a feature of an entertainment during 
Book Week, but there are several reasons 
why this custom is no longer practical. 

Our cooperation with the schools is 
even closer than before. Beginning this 
term children are being brought in school 
buses to the Public Library for instruc- 
tion in the use of books. Also some exhi- 
bition of handicraft by the pupils of the 
grade schools is on display in both Main 
Library and the Webster Branch. 

A very beautiful display of pottery has 
excited considerable comment in town.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



[Jan., 1933 



ALAMEDA CO.— Continued 
Alameda — Continued 
group left us in August to be married, and 
sailed to live in the Dutch Bast Indies. 

The installation of a charging desk 
directly in front of the entrance has 
proved well worth while as a deterrent to 
books on French leave. 

J. I. CuKTis, Lib'n. 

Berkeley 

Berkeley [Fbee] Public Libbaby. 
Susan T. Smith, Lib'n. 

In keeping with the times, the celebra- 
tion of Children's Book Week this year 
was marked by simplicity. The public 
schools cooperated by using the theme 
"Books for Young America" as the motive 
for their art projects. Two of these were 
exhibited in the library. The scene from 
"Little Women" was well executed down 
to the smallest detail, and attracted many 
children and parents to the room. A 
pioneer log cabin on the edge of a deep 
forest, surrounded by Indians, gave a 
touch of realism to the exhibit. Designs 
for book week posters and water color 
drawings of costumes and customs of 
Spanish California added a striking note 
of color. 

Through the courtesy of Longman's 
Green Company Mrs. Laura Adams 
Armer, author of "Waterless Mountain" 
and a Berkeley resident, spoke to two 
groups of children, one in the Boys and 
Girls Room at the main library, and the 
other in the AVest Berkeley Branch Li- 
brary. It was a thrilling experience to 
hear at first hand about Little Brother 
and the Navajo country. One little girl 
brought her book to be autographed and 
that started an avalanche of requests for 
autographs, the children saying they 
would get the book for Christmas and 
paste Mrs. Armer's signature in it. Two 
originals of the illustrations of the book 
were displayed in the glass exhibit case 
in the lobby. These were loaned to the 
library by Longman's Green Company.

The circulation of books throughout 
the library system for the five months 
ending November 30, 1932 totaled 855,- 
510, a gain of 89,634, or 11.7 per cent, 
over the corresponding period a year ago. 
The 1931-32 circulation was 13 per cent 
more than 1930-31 and 1930-31 had ex- 
ceeded 1929-30 by 8 per cent. 

Substantial improvement in the prob- 
lem of the return of the long overdue book 
has been made by assigning the task, of 
calling on delinquent borrowers to the first 
assistant in the circulation department 
and an associate in place of the former 
"messenger service." This use of well- 
trained and better-paid assistants is prov- 
ing less costly when judged in the light 
of the increased returns. 

On October 28 the Library Board re- 
organized by reelecting Dr. McCracken 
President and Mr. Kramer Vice Presi-

At the request of the Recreation De- 
partment a collection of books on winter 
sports, especially skiing, has been begun. 

The periodical contract for 1933 has 
been let to the Hanson Bennett Agency 
of Chicago, the lowest bidders. 

Several branch libraries have been 
broken into recently in Berkeley, Ala-

the staff have been held up. 

Book Week was celebrated with ex- 
hibits of new books, posters and book-

The 50 elementary school libraries of 
Oakland contain 235,280 books, of which 
16,110 were added during the semester. 
5563 books were withdrawn. 24,789 
books were borrowed from the Oakland 
Public Library. 1007 magazines are 
subscribed for. 

All of these libraries are open during 
the school day, in charge of various teach- 
ers assigned with their classes to the li- 
braries for varying periods, under the 
leadership of one teacher appointed by the 
principal as Chairman of the Library 
Committee. 

The Central Cataloging Department 
has taken care of all the books in all the 
elementary libraries for the past two 
years. In addition, we have organized all 
of the books, new and old, in the libraries 
listed below, making these particular li- 
braries completely organized units. All 
the libraries have separate rooms and 
equipment. This process will continue 
until all the libraries are completely or-

November was a very busy happy 
month in our library. It began by a 
visit from Mrs. May Dexter Henshall and 
that means that we are on our way with 
new enthusiasm and inspiration. Mrs. 
Henshall accompanied Henrietta Eudey 
on a day of visiting branches and inci- 
dentally Mount Zion, a government sta- 
tion that is to have a camp for the unem- 
ployed. "We plan to give service of books 
and magazines to this camp this winter. 

On November 7 the contract was signed 
for the building of our new library. The 
building is to be of brick with a tiled 
roof, and will be one story with a fine 
basement. We hope to be in our new 
quarters by March, 1933. 

During Book Week Henrietta Eudey 
visited many branches and almost every 
school. We stressed the reading of the 
children's classics and displayed new 
editions of these old stories. A play 
written by our assistant, Frances Schacht, 
entitled "A visit to Bookland," was given 
at the Jackson Elementary School. In 
this play the characters from the classics 
were depicted by the children. This play 
was also given at the Jackson Woman's

Several changes were made at the 
Chico Public Library during the fall 
season. The first week in October 
brought the completion of numerous im- 
provements. The librarian's office and 
the charging desk were moved to a more 
advantageous location. The desk was 
placed in the center of the building, and 
the office was installed directly behind it. 
This arrangement gives an unobstructed 
view of the desk • and the entire reading 
room from the office. This is a great 
improvement over the former arrange- 
ment. The valuable literature and his- 
tory collections have been placed on 
closed shelves. This method of handling 
these books has proved to have many 
advantages over the open shelves method 
foiTnerly used. 

Book Week was celebrated in Novem- 
ber by a large display of new and beauti- 
fully illustrated children's books. This 
display created much favorable comment 
and an added interest in children's litera- 
ture. The week was climaxed by a 
story hour, which was held in the club 
room of the library building. Preceding 
the stoiy hour, the meaning of Book 
Week was explained to the large num- 
ber of children who attended.

emergencies from year to year. 

As for our beautiful new building, the 
construction work was completed Septem-

across the street. Some of the club 
ladies supervised the arranging of these 
on the walk and stood guard until the 
main library was notified and assistants 
went down. Another relay of high school 
boys and girls helped to remove the rest 
of the books and all of them and the 
furniture were stored in the hotel until 
our room could be made ready for them. 
We were very fortunate in incurring no 
loss by either fire or water, though the 
ceiling and walls were water soaked. The 
room has been refinished and we have 
moved in again and the business of the 
library is going on as if nothing had 
happened 

Sierra Vista Branch has been moved 
from a small room in the Community 
Church to a large store room in the same 
neighborhood. The old room was so 
small and crowded it could not accom- 
modate the patrons and the work suffered 
thereby. The new location provides for 
present comfort and future growth. We 
have installed more stacks and are rap- 
idly building up a more adequate collec- 
tion of books. Already there is a decided 
gain in adult borrowers. 

We have had an interesting experience 
with one of our elementary schools. It 
came into the county library in 1918 and 
worked smoothly until 1924, when the 
principal decided she could work better 
alone and persuaded her trustees to with- 
draw. We took away our books, records 
and other equipment and in spite of the 
fact that her teachers were hampered in 
their work and wished to come back she 
kept the school out for the rest of her 
time as principal. In 1931 they finally 
got the trustees to sign a contract to 
come in again and this was sent to the 
library one day and frantically recalled 
the next. But in October of this year, 
with a change in principal, they have 
again joined the library and are receiving 
service, much to their satisfaction. 

The 20th annual custodians' meeting 
was held in November with twenty-six 
custodians in attendance. The morning 
session was taken up with greetings and 
roll call by Miss McCardle and a most 
interesting talk by Miss Katharine Ben- 
nitt, Home Demonstration Agent, on her 
recent trip to China. The afternoon was

given over to informal discussion of 
branch problems. 

During the meeting of the tri-county 
teachere' institute held in Fresno in 
November, the librarians of Kings, 
Madera and Fresno counties, with their 
school department assistants, had lunch- 
eon together and discussed the problems 
which they have in common. This has 
grown to be an annual affair much en- 
joyed by all. 

Book Week was observed in the larger 
aranches, though nothing new was tried 
this year. Miss Gates, Children's Libra- 
■ian, had a good display of new books at 
he main library and on Wednesday eve- 
ning she held open house for the parents. 
Tea was served to the visitors who were 
luite interested in seeing the books and 
jetting suggestions for gifts, etc. Miss 
Gates spoke to several P. T. A. groups 
luring the week. The sixth grade from 
one of the Fresno elementary schools 
visited the children's room to see the 
Book Week display. During the quarter 
iliss Gates held story hours at several of 
he schools, talked to an adult group at 
one of the department stores, spoke to 
the faculty of one of the junior high 
schools and had as visitors a class from 
the State College training school. This 
was a class in children's literature and 
aach semester the teacher brings them 
lo the library to study the illustrations 
in the children's books. 

Miss McCardle spoke to the Ladies' 
Auxiliai-y of Branch 619, Workingmen's 
Circle, a Jewish society, on "The part 
the library plays in the cultural life of 
he people." Mrs. Van Dussen, head of 
the school department, spoke to the fac- 
ulty of the Kerman High School, at their 
lequest, on the best use to be made of the 
books in their library and how the county 
library can assist them by lending them 
books not in their library. Miss Alvord, 
Readers' Adviser, spoke to three P. T. A. 
groups, two on character building through 
reading and the third a general talk on 
recent books.

As is usual during this time of year, 
the observance of Children's Book Week 
was our major library activity. An 
essay contest was sponsored in which all 
grammar school children of the county 
were invited to participate, and almost 
three hundred essays, entitled A Favorite 
Book : Why I Like It, were entered. 
It was interesting to observe that Little 
Women and Tom Sawyer were still the 
prime favorites of this rising generation. 
The prize for the seventh-eighth-gi-ades 
group went to an essay on Irving's Al- 
hambra, while a little fifth-grade girl 
won the prize for the lower grades, writ- 
ing such a charming and sincere apprecia- 
tion of Rachel Field's Hitty, Her First 
Hundred Years, that in a moment of 
enthusiasm a copy was sent to the author 
herself. Miss Field responded with a 
graceful and characteristic letter to Ann 
Ellen Arnold, of Corcoran, the young 
writer. 

At Armona and Stratford Branches, 
teachers of the grammar schools brought 
their classes in groups to see the exhibits 
of new books. A special effort was made 
this year to fill in any gaps in the li-

classics, and judging from the enthusiastic 
comments of both custodians and patrons, 
this policy was much appreciated.

September 28, the class instruction for 
elementary work in branch libraries, after 
a temporary abandonment of the project 
at the end of June. With an ever in- 
creasing load of work and financial in- 
ability to employ many professionally 
trained assistants in the branches, the 
giving of several courses in instruction 
has become absolutely necessary. 

There is no depression in the volume of 
our business and unless library funds are 
cut off entirely, w^e shall continue to be 
compelled to employ assistants and these 
will necessarily be compelled to try to 
meet the requirements of the work. 

Three events during the quarter have 
claimed much of our attention. First, 



vol. 28, no. 1] 



CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES

LOS ANGELES CO.— Continued 
the building and opening of much larger 
quarters for the branch located in Belve- 
dere Gardens. This branch has had a 
veiT splendid growth. It was opened 
in 1923 in a tiny box of a building, built 
from funds raised by a community 
minstrel show. In 1924 it was moved to 
.what was then considered commodious 
quarters, but in eight years these were 
outgrown and a third home had to be pre- 
pared. When the Belvedere subdivision 
was opened in 1920, the only buildings 
were those on a dairy farm. The district 
is unincorporated and there are now 4402 
registered library borrowers. The num- 
ber of books issued for home use in 
1931-32, was 83,412. At the present 
rate of use the circulation for the current 
year bids fair to reach 100,000. 

The second event was the dedication 
of the very beautiful Doheny Memorial 
Library, presented to the University of 
Southern California on September 12. 
An occasion of this magnitude in our 
experience can not but stir the profes- 
sioinal pride of librarians and stimulate 
their deep concern to make library service 
an ever widening circle that may include 
everybody. 

The third event was the meeting of the 
6th District of the California Library 
Association at Pasadena, November 19. 
The Los Angeles County Librarian as 
president of the district, aimed to pro- 
vide a program that would present pro- 
fessional matters of broad interest with 
other features, both literary and artistic 
in effect. Important professional de- 
cisions were enacted and the spirit of the 
company, afterward expressed to the 
chairman, seems to indicate that the 
meeting was considered a very good one. 

In these days when the taxpayer views 
with alarm any public service that is 
free, and since this word as used in a 
public library name has lost any essential 
significaince, the Board of Supervisors 
has changed our name to the Los Angeles 
County Public Library. The action of 
the Board was taken under advice of the 
County Counsel and the new ordinance 
reads as follows : 

"The name of the (Los Angeles) 
County Free Library shall be, and hereby 
is, changed to the (Los Angeles) County 



LOS ANGELES CO.— Continued 
Public Library. Such change of name 
shall not be deemed to change nor affect 
the functions of said library, nor the 
duties or compensation of any persons 
employed therein. This ordinance shall 
take effect December 1, 1932." The 
ordinance was published for fifteen days 
in the Los Angeles Daily Journal and 
was passed and adopted by the Board as 
a whole. 

Since a county library is a public li- 
brary, the term public was included so 
that its general function should be made 
clear and that no parallel with the term 
"County Farm" might be inferred. The 
change in stationery and signs for the 
public will be brought about gradually. 

A new experience for this library came 
upon an invitation to join the radio tribe. 
We are represented by Miss Gretchen 
Knief, a senior in the reference division, 
speaking over K.R.K.D. every Thursday 
at 12.15 p.m. The talks have been pre- 
pared by different members of the staff 
and are very general in nature. The 
topic drawing most return calls was the 
one on local history. This subject was 
not limited to the city of Los Angeles, but 
included many items of interest of lesser 
known parts of the county. Two of the 
other topics given were "Library Service 
to Inmates in County Institutions" and 
a "Dialogue between a children's librarian 
and a father" who wished to select books 
as Christmas gifts for his four children.

The Business and Professional Women's 
Club of Alhambra invited the library to 
put on a program at the Thanksgiving 
meeting, November 22. This was done 
with the idea of familiarizing those at- 
tending with the various branches and 
departments of public library work — the 
work that is not done at the charging 
desk — in an endeavor to create an intelli- 
gent demand for more adequate financial 
support in the coming year by the public 
as a whole. The librarian gave a fifteen- 
minute talk on preparing for librarian- 
ship, and on the life of a library book 
from the time of its selection and pur- 
chase on through the process of catalog-

LOS ANGELES CO. — Continued 
Alhambra — Continued 
ing, preparation for circulation or refer- 
ence work, until the time of discarding or 
replacement. A skit followed, inspired 
by Edmund Peai-son's "Librarian at 
play." It was called "The crowded 
hour," and was very cleverly acted by 
eleven members of the library staif. Four 
took masculine parts, and evei'y member 
of the cast was easily identified with some 
type of library habitue. To close the play, 
the Children's Librarian demanded that 
the desk attendants be "relieved" to help 
her present a marionette play before a 
waiting audience of imaginary children. 
"The gooseberry mandarin," by Grace 
Ruthenberg, was then given, and the ex- 
quisite little Chinese marionettes, designed 
by Jean Carter, Children's Librarian and 
costumed by Esther Ross, eataloger, 
enacted their parts to the amusement and 
delight of a large and very appreciative 
audience. 

Florence Jean Carter, our Children's 
Librarian for more than four years, was 
maiTied on the tenth of December to 
Wayne Darrell Cooley, in Honolulu,, 
Hawaii. Miss Helen Parker has been 
appointed in her place. 

Louise Payson White, assistant eata- 
loger, resigned to accept the position of 
librarian in the new San Marino library. 

Having no book fund this year we were 
forced to omit our annual exhibit of new 
books for Christmas giving which has' 
been so much enjoyed by our adult read- 
ers in years gone by. Through the cour- 
tesy of A. C. Vroman, of Pasadena, 
twenty-five books were shown, and a 
game instituted which proved very popu- 
lar. The library had a small sum from 
an unexpected source, sufficient to pur- 
chase about five books of nonfiction. Pa- 
trons were asked to fill out reserve slips 
for the book that most appealed to them, 
and were promised that the five books 
receiving the greatest number of votes 
would be purchased by the library as a 
Christmas gift.

of a Buddhist Manual, used in Northern

able treasures included in this exhibit 
were a Buddhist sacred book used in a 
Chinese family for over two hundred 
years, examples of cuneiform writing in 
Babylonian temple tablets of the period 
from 2200 to 2400 B.C., and a page from 
the Gutenberg Bible. 

When Mrs. Dagney Carter Murphy was 
giving her lectures on Chinese Art in 
Pomona College, her rare collection of 
ancient Chinese bronze mirrors, seal- 
charms, and decorative amulets and other 
charms in animal style art of the nomad 
tribes of the Chinese border, was on 
exhibit. 

One of the George Washington Bicen- 
tennial Contest bronze medals was given 
to Pomona College and was exhibited dur- 
ing the month of December. A replica 
of the obverse and reverse sides in plas- 
ter of Paris, done by Professor Cyril

examples of the best biographies of 
George Washington and copies of the

members attended the Sixth District 
Meeting of the California Librai-y Asso- 
ciation held at Pasadena on November 
19. Miss Plaister's excellent x-eport on 
the condition of unemployment among 
trained librarians in Southern Califor- 
nia, revealing through the results of a 
questionnaire, a less unpromising situa- 
tion than might have been expected was 
of much interest. Her conclusions are 
confinned through statistics of the num- 
ber of graduates of the Los Angeles Li- 
brary school of classes of the last three 
years who are now placed. 

Placements of graduates of Los Angeles 
Libra i-j' School 

Of the last class of the school, graduat- 
ing in June, 1932. consisting of 29 mem- 
bers, 14, or nearly 50 per cent, have re- 
ceived permanent appointments ; nine 
have temporary appointments, one is mar- 
ried and not seeking a position, and five 
are at present unemployed. Analyzing 
the 14 permanent placements, we find 11 
in public libraries (3 acting as children's 
librarians ) , 2 in university libraries and 
one in a special library. 

Of the class of 1931, all but four of 
the 31 members are employed, with the 
majority placed in public libraries, and 
other representatives in school libraries, 
a special library, a county library and a 
teachers college library. 

Going back one year further to the 33 
graduates of the class of 1930, all but 
three are now employed and these three 
have had temporary positions. Five of 
these graduates are acting as head of li-

braries, or branch libraries or depart- 
ments, one is executive secretary of a 
library school, and others are holding 
responsible positions. 

Circulation and Budget Problems 
The first three months of the quarter 
continue to show large gains in book cir- 
culation over last year's record-breaking 
figures. Since July the gain has averaged 
13.5,000 per month or a daily average 
increase of 5000. Welcome relief to 
hard-pressed librarians is found in tem- 
porary assistance given by unemployed 
clerical workers paid by funds provided 
by the County Welfare Department. 

Further economies made necessary over 
the proposed budget are an additional 
reduction of $500 in the periodical budget, 
the discontinuance of stations in com- 
mercial houses, and the decision to con- 
vert Hazard, the smallest branch, into a 
station (a saving of approximately 
$2000). 

To supplement the book budget and to 
aid in supplying books to replace those 
wearing out under the stress of increased 
circulation, a book-gift drive is- planned 
for January. 

Proposed Charter Amendment 
A charter amendment placed on the 
ballot of November 8 was designed to 
allow the three city departments. Library, 
Harbor and Water and Power, to con- 
trol their own purchases involving an 
expenditure in excess of one thousand 
dollars, a power which had been vested in 
the City Purchasing Agent. The measure 
was defeated, as a "No" mood seemed 
to govern the majority of the voters. 
The Library Commissioners did not ask 
to be included in this measure, and made 
no attempt to control the results. 

A second measure proposing to place 
all city departments' salaries under the 
jurisdiction of the City Council, includ- 
ing those of departments now controlling 
their own budgets, was voted down by 
the Council in a session in which the 
President of the Board of Library Com- 
missioners made an eloquent plea for 
the continuance of the separate admin- 
istration of the Library Department.

Los Angeles — Continued 
Service to Another City Department 
On November 14, a branch, of the 
Municipal Reference Department was 
opened up in the Pov^er and Light Bureau 
of the Department of Water and Power. 
Through a mutual agreement, the City Li- 
brary is to administer service under the 
jurisdiction of the Municipal Reference 
Librarian, with all expenses borne by 
the Water and Power Department. An 
assistant department librarian and a 
clerical library aid trained in the Munici- 
pal Reference Library have been trans- 
ferred to the new branch. Interlibrary 
loan privileges will extend to the collec- 
tions of the Municipal Reference Li- 
brary and the Central Library. Books 
and publications will be vested in the de- 
partment which purchases these but will, 
in turn, be available for loans to other 
city departments. It is believed that 
this will prove an interesting experiment 
in extension of service. 

Serials Work Book 

The Order Department completed pub- 
lication in October of a "Work Book of 
Serials Procedure" which explains and 
illustrates the methods of ordering, fil- 
ing and distributing all serials and con- 
tinuations, including government docu- 
ments. Originally intended as a working 
tool and reference authority for staff 
members of the Serials Division, this 
book has proved to have value to many 
librarians and orders have been received 
from Canada, Australia, New Zealand 
and library schools and state universities, 
180 in all. Manufacturers of the Acme 
Card System made a grant from their 
advertising fund to assist in the expense 
of publication, and to pay for sample 
copies. 

Dean Cornwell, the mural painter who 
is completing the last four of the twelve 
large canvases for the decoration of the 
Rotunda has been granted an extension 
of his contract until February, 1933, but 
it is hoped that the last paintings will 
be in place within a few weeks.

In August, the City School Library, 
which serves the 297 elementary schools 
of the Los Angeles school district, and 
the High School Libx-ary and Textbook 
Division, which is responsible for the 
supervision of the junior and senior 
high school libraries and for the high 
school textbooks, were merged as the Li- 
brary and Textbook Division. Jasmine 
Britton was appointed Supervising Li- 
brarian. 

In December the offices of the division 
will be moved from the Braun Building 
to the administration building at the cor- 
ner of Sentous and Pico streets. This 
was formerly occupied by the Sentous 
Junior High School and will be re- 
modeled for use by the . Library, Visual 
Education, Art, Vocational Education 
and Music departments. 

Book Week was celebrated by an 
attractive exhibit which emphasized 
books on Scandinavia and the develop- 
ment of America. At a meeting for the 
teachera and principals of the elementary 
schools, Mrs. Gudrun Thorne-Thomsen, 
author of "East o' the sun and west o' 
the moon," and IVIrs. Irene Robinson, 
illustrator of "Beasts of the tar pits," 
were the guests of honor. 

The library has recently published a 
list of books for development schools, 
which includes titles that appeal to slow 
readers. Two numbers of Book Trails, 
a quarterly devoted to the use of books, 
have been issued by the library. 

The fifth School Library Yea/i-iook, 
published by the American Library Asso- 
ciation in October, contains floor plans 
and illustrations of some of the distinc- 
tive high school libraries in Los Angeles 
with explanations of various phases of 
library administration, contributed by a 
committee of school librarians, of which 
Ella S. Morgan was chairman. The 
Yearbook also contains standards for li- 
braries in elementary schools, junior and 
senior high schools and teachers colleges, 
studies in high school library finance, a 
bibliography of books and periodical 
articles relating to school libraries, com- 
piled by Grace Lefler, and a directory

Book Week this year at Venice High 
School had to accent books that were not 
new, thanks to the "depression" ! It 
thi-eatened to be embarrassing, to say 
the least, not to have any bright and 
shiny new books to offer my 2000 stu- 
dents, until we hit upon the idea of put- 
ting real value into truly old books. 
Thus, four weeks before November 13, 
we began telling the Story of Bookmak- 
ing, with displays of papyrus, cuneiform 
tablets, facsimiles of the Rosetti Stone 
and everything else on that first period 
that we could borrow from Visual Educa- 
tion and the Public Library. Each week 
we thus developed a period : Illuminated 
Manuscripts, Invention and development 
of Printing, and Bindings. This gave 
us an opportunity to advertise and dis- 
play our books on Books, on collecting, 
on fine printing and on printers, and 
served as a liberal education to faculty

and students alike. To culminate our 
four weeks' preparation for Book Week 
itself we had our illuminated cases in 
the main hall and in the library filled 
with rare books loaned to us from Daw- 
son's Book Shop. And on Monday, at a 
tea sponsored by the Library Club, Mr. 
Dawson himself spoke on the subject of 
Rare Books and Book Collecting, illus- 
trating his most enjoyable talk with 
choice books brought for the occasion. 

The results of Book Week, as reflected

number using the library as well as in 
a renewed interest in books, per se, have 
been most gratifying.

A municipal exhibit, planned with the 
idea of acquainting the people of Pasa- 
dena with the work of all the city depart- 
ments, was held in the new Civic Audi- 
torium, November 14 to 16. 

This proved to be an ideal opportunity 
for the library department to advertise 
itself to the public at large and to demon- 
strate its many types of service. Talks 
from time to time over the Auditorium 
Public Address System by the City Man- 
ager and the heads of departments ex- 
plaining briefly the work of all depart- 
ments was also a means to this end. 

The library exhibit achieved a striking 
and colorful effect by means of an im- 
mense three-paneled screen of turquoise- 
blue beaver board. The central panel cut 
the corner of the room assigned to the 
library while the wings of the screen 
ran parallel to the walls of the room. 
The first view of the exhibit showed an 
arresting clock dial 4J feet in diameter 
above which was the legend printed in 
large black letters :

to Better Business, etc., illustrating in 

each instance the types of service which 

the library gives to its patrons. 

The side panels of the screen were 
used as display fields on which inter- 
esting examples of public documents, col- 
ored California flower pictures, fine arts 
material, such as mounted pictures and a 
victrola record, were artistically arranged. 
One space was devoted to all the many- 
colored booklets of the well-known Read- 
ing With a Purpose series. Arranged in 
a solid diamond design, this display was 
the focus of many eyes and many inter- 
ested questions. Beautiful maps of the 
histoiT of printing, book voyages and the 
map issued by the Boys' and Girls' de- 
partment of the library filled the right 
wing. Beneath the children's book map 
were attractive editions of the books men- 
tioned on the map itself. 

A long, narrow table showed nicely ar- 
ranged library tools, such as examples of 
cataloging, book buying aids, and popular 
reference books. Still a third table held 
exhibits of the types of mending and bind- 
ing done at the library, while two library 
assistants actually mended books for the 
duration of the exhibition. 

The piece de resistance of the exhibit, 
however, was the large table in front of 
the clock dial on which was spread a map 
of Pasadena's public library system. At 
the proper intersections stood miniature 
replicas of the main library and the four 
branches, made to scale, and carved out of 
soap by a talented member of the staff. 
Many identifying details were minutely 
and beautifully worked out. Hedges and 
trees were cut and shaped out of green 
sponge, exquisite little flower beds wei-e 
also made of bits of colored sponge and 
stretches of lawn were made of painted 
sandpaper. The buildings themselves, of 
course, were completely charming and 
easily recognizable. 

A case of rare and beautifully illus- 
trated books completed the exhibit. 

On Saturday of this same week the 
Sixth District of The California Library 
Association met in Pasadena and the 
exhibit was reassembled for the benefit of 
the visiting librarians. 

It was felt that the exhibit amply

repaid in publicity the effort expended 
upon it. A new conception of the library 
was created among the hundreds of vis- 
itors to the exhibition and knowledge of

Week was a seiies of posters from Stokes, 
illustrating the processes of book-making. 
Displays of neAV books, and talks to or- 
ganizations were made, but these are 
routine practice, and not worth more 
than a mention. 

Our pay collection of new fiction is 
self-supporting, and perceptibly relieves 
the library book budget. To our surprise 
patrons have made no complaint that all 
new fiction is in the pay collection. 
Mouth by month its use increases.

Mrs. Alice de V. Cagwin, librarian of 
Larkspur Free Public I>ibrary since 1923, 
has resigned. Mi*s. Helen S. Wilson was 
appointed to take her place, her appoint- 
ment being effective December 1, 1932. 

Beginning December 1, the library is 
to be open three additional hours a week, 
Thursday 2 to 5 p.m. The previous hours 
were Monday, Wednesday and Friday 
7.30 to 9 and Tuesday 2 to 5 p.m. 

San Quentin 

San Quentin Prison Libeaby. James 
Holohan, Warden. Alfred C. Schmitt, 
Director. 

The Prison Libi-ary has received a new 
impetus during the last quarter. Dr, 
Alfred C. Schmitt, who is Director of 
Religious Activities, has also been ap- 
pointed Director of the library. The 
more than five thousand inmates here 
take advantage of the excellent library 
facilities and throngs crowd into the 
building every weekday to exchange books 
and magazines. The 19,000 books al- 
ready on the library shelves have been 
augmented by some 1500 more recently 
through a donation from the San Fran- 
cisco Public Library. Around sixty 
weekly and monthly magazines are 
perused by most of the inmates even 
though they are not up to date ]>eriodi- 
cals. 

A feature of the library system for 
years is the State Library service which 
is connected with the prison library. Un- 
der this system, any inmate who wants a 
special book which is not in the prison 
library, can get the book from the State 
Library at Sacramento. The cost is 
nominal, charge being made to the inmate 
for postage one way only. Thousands of 
books are being read through this branch 
alone. 

Another feature of recent origin is the 
organization of a Book of the Month 
Club, and all club books are kept separate

for club distribution only. After the mem- 
bers of the club are finished with the 
books, they then are given to the prison 
library. There are thirty-four members 
of the club at present, each member pay- 
ing for his own books from personal 
funds. In this fashion the prison library 
receives hundreds of books each year, 
thus increasing the service to the inmates 
generally. 

Dr. Schmitt, Director of the Library, 
has visited several of the Road Camps 
and, because of his knowledge of the 
needs at each camp, has sent out many 
books and magazines to each of the seven 
camps. Plans are going forward to make 
this service a permanent one. In the 
future, books and magazines will be sent 
monthly to the Road Camps. Dr. 
Schmitt has other plans for the Road 
Camps for the future. 

Since Dr. Schmitt has been appointed 
Director of the Library, the Prison Li- 
brary has been separated from the Edu- 
cational Department, as it has been felt 
for some time that the library service is 
a field all its own. The 55 employees in 
the library are chosen for their experi- 
ence in helping the inmates to choose 
books to their liking and for their think- 
ing along lines of social betterment. 
Many will be surprised to learn that a 
good percentage of the inmates choose 
nonfiction books of an educational and 
scientific nature. 

The above library px'ogram together 
with the Saturday afternoon lectures on 
educational subjects with occasional de- 
bates, stimulates the minds of the in- 
mates to better reading and thinking.

A pleasant and useful innovation in 
our library is the "stoi-y-telling hour," 
which takes place twice a month on Sat- 
urday mornings. This is greatly enjoyed 
by our children, who, we are pleased to 
note, attend regularly, showing deep in- 
terest in the tales. 

The use of the library as a reading 
room has increased so much that we are

often embarrassed for places for our pa- 
trons. The type of reading, of course, 
has changed, there being a great demand 
for books of a serious nature — economics 
and history, etc. For these we are obliged 
to di'aw heavily upon our State Library. 

We have practiced vei*y carefully all 
the small economies possible, and not- 
withstanding the easement on fines, our 
collection of the latter has been uni- 
formly good. We add, with a certain 
amount of pride, that we have been able 
to keep our binding almost up to nonnal. 

This summer our assistant librarian 
took some of the courses offered by the 
Riverside Library Service School.

inhabitants recorded by the 1930 census. 
With 2260 inhabitants we have 2429 per- 
manent borrowers, not to mention over 
150 temporary patrons. You may explain 
it as you will, but we really do tell the 
truth. Even without our summer visitors 
the circulation continues to run over 7000.

wise. Instead of opening at 11 a.m. and 
giving but three nights a week, we decided 
to open at 1 p.m. and give every evening 
except Sunday. So far our public seems 
pleased. 

Three beautiful paintings have recently 
been given to us — The Carmel Mission, 
by Josephine Culbertson, A Scene in 
Morocco, by William Watts, and Rags, 
a little dog, by Elizabeth Strong. The 
latter was hung in the Children's Room 
in honor of our Book Week celebration, 
which brought a most gratifying response 
from the children themselves this year. 
We had our usual display of new books 
which were not permitted to go out until 
Saturday, and then how they did go. 
Flocks of children were in the garden an 
hour before time for oi>ening, and we've 
scarcely seen a new book on the tables 
since, except the histories. Each class 
was brought from Sunset School to visit 
the library and learn more of its use, 
while those who were not registered were 
given cards. Reading lists were distrib- 
uted, and at the end of the week four 
prizes were presented to those handing 
in the best reading lists for the past year. 

Among our temporary borrowers we 
have had the pleasure of numbering Miss 
Mai-y Bai-mby and Mr. John Boynton

Miss Etta Eckhardt, Lib'n. 

Children's Book Week was observed 
at the librai-y but owing to the limited 
book budget this year the exhibit of new 
books was small. An interest was created 
however, by displaying older books in 
groups, each group representing either 
a period in American history or some 
phase of American or foreign life. The 
.subjects presented were : "America before 
the white man came," "U. S. History 
Colonial period," "Revolutionary period," 
"The Civil war," "Home life in America," 
"Young America peeps at other lands." 
Lists of these books were sent to each 
grade in the grammar schools, the teach- 
ere cooperating by having the pupils write 
stories about the books listed. The result

was very satisfactory to both library and

Pacific Grove 

Pacific Geove [Free] Public Li- 
brary. Miss Ethel De Witt, Lib'n. 

The Pacific Grove Public Library has 
been the scene of great activity during the 
past few months. We are delighted to 
be able to announce the complete remodel- 
ling of our workroom. A typing desk, 
cupboard space, filing drawer, coat closet 
are but a few of the improvements. 

The circulation desk also has been 
remodeled, many built-in features adding 
greatly to its convenience and efficiency. 

Not only has the interior of the build- 
ing been receiving attention, but the 
grounds have had their share, too. Many 
of the trees have been trimmed, giving 
more sunshine and light in the library. 
Many new flowers and shrubs have been 
planted, and a rock garden built around 
the palm in the front of the building. 

Through the generosity of one of our 
trustees, Mrs. E. C. Smith and her hus- 
band, sixteen new display panels of cork 
have been placed in the children's room 
above the book stacks. These were a 
great help this year in making an attrac- 
tive room for Children's Book Week, 
scenes depicting the various stages of 
American history being displayed on the 
panels. A yellow crepe paper map on a 
background of black, with blue yarn 
streamers connecting the states with the 
books dealing with their place in Amer- 
ican histoiT and life ; dolls dressed to 
represent outstanding characters in the 
country's history ; colorful posters, all 
helped to make the week a success. 

Miss Gardner, assistant librarian, has 
just completed reclassifying and recata- 
loging all the books in our children's 
room. 

We were very pleased to have a visit 
from our County Librarian, Miss Frink, 
and her assistant. Miss Hall, one day

With a reduction in our teaching staff 
of one teacher, and a consequent assign- 
ment of one period of study hall duty 
taken from "library time," our fall term 
hasn't been quite as productive of results 
as previously anticipated. However, an 
enthusiastic library club is functioning 
admirably and an increase in circulation 
and in use of the library is most notice- 
able. 

The event of the fall was, of course, 
Book Week. A display of American 
books, new books put into circulation, 
very attractive bulletin board displays 
changed each day and arranged by the 
Library Club, a book page in the weekly 
school paper, and a Book Week prize 
contest were the events of the week 
which were entered into with enthusiasm 
by the students who voted it the best 
Book Week in years.

On the 14th of July, the French

reporter on the Napa Journal, and the 
County Librarian put into effect a plan 
they had had in mind for some time to 
organize a club of the French speaking 
people in the Napa Valley. A social call 
and from there a few telephone calls and 
then some newspaper publicity and the 
club was a reality. Meeting every two 
weeks enthusiasm and membership have 
increased until we have some seventeen 
members, all speaking fluent French. 
The membership is scattered over the 
county and as meetings are held at the 
various homes we have made some pleas- 
ant excursions. A dinner was given by 
the club to the husbands and friends of 
members and there were thirty in attend- 
ance. Tlie County Librarian and another

member will entertain the club at a 
Christmas party on December 20. French 
books from the French Book of the Month

mother have circulated to the members 
through the county library. 

The county library staff attended one 
meeting of the Open Forum held at Fair- 
field at the invitation of Miss Edith 
Gantt, Solano County librarian and 
were inspired to go home and do likewise. 
Plans are now on foot which we hope 
will bear fruit in the near futui'e.

National Book Week was observed at 
the Hemet Public Library by an attrac- 
tive display of all the new books for 
young people, which we could possibly 
find the money to buy. The Huntting 
reinforced and rebound books were much 
in evidence, as we continue to find their 
wearing qualities very desirable in chil- 
dren's books. W^e had been hoarding 
the Junior Literary Guild selections for 
several months, and these attractive books 
formed a pleasing part of the display. 

The centenary of Louisa M. Alcott's 
birth was featured by posters accompany- 
ing a showing of her still-popular books 
for young people. A fine edition of 
Ramona proved to be of especial interest 
to local people, because of the famous 
Ramona Pageant, annually produced in 
this valley. The newest book by our local 
author, Edwin L. Sabin, "Mississippi 
River boy," was also shown. 

Other tables which interested our vis- 
itors showed new travel books and modern 
geographies; a contrasting display featur- 
ing children's primers, ehapbooks and 
Horn books of three hundred years ago, 
beside the colorful juvenile readers of 
today ; and a large number of cleverly 
designed book jackets, made by children 
of the Hemet schools, which drew much 
attention. The Saturday morning story 
hour was well attended. 

Plans are under discussion for extend- 
ing the library building, as it is already 
overcrowded. This would necessitate a 
bond issue, but may be considered to be 
advisable at this time, because of the 
low cost of building materials and labor.

For Book Week this year, the librarian 
took many of our newer and more ex- 
pensive books to various schools for 
exhibition. After short talks on the

to keep longer. The librarian also spoke 
before the Mothers Club of the Fremont

the county library. It had long been 
inadequate, and the Library Board de- 
cided to adopt the Newark system, and 
also decided to try the Gaylord electric 
machine for effective operation of the sys- 
tem. Miss Gladys Stevens, manager of 
the Stockton office of Gaylord Brothers, 
instructed in the use of the machine and 
assisted in various ways. We feel greatly 
indebted to her for her kindly interest

The San Diego Public Library cele- 
brated Book Week with a city-wide plea 
for usable gift books and gifts of money 
with which to buy books. The response 
was so immediate to the preliminary 
newspaper publicity that books began 
pouring in November 1. The idea was 
stressed through the entire month of 
November. At the end of Book Week 
1500 titles had been received, 1000 of 
them immediately usable and the balance 
to be sorted for rebinding, sale as old 
paper, sale to secondhand stores, and 
hold as replacements. $50 had been 
donated for book purchase by organiza- 
tions and individuals. 

The week of December 1 to 7 was 
declared Prodigal Book Week when no 
overdues were to be charged and no ques- 
tions asked concerning books returned.

over two pages in its Sunday edition to 
items of interest concerning the school.

The climax to our celebrations came on 
November 23 when we had a home-coming 
day for graduates and fonner students. 
A special assembly featured days of long 
ago. The first principal, Mr. J. A. Rice ; 
one of the first eight teachers, Miss Kate 
Sessions ; the teacher of Latin in 1888, 
Mrs. Philip Morse (Miss Ella McCou-

Miss Lillian Whalej' ; and a member of 
the second graduating class, Mrs. Olive 
Puryear attended and were introduced 
to the student body. During the day, a 
ten-page anniversary edition of our school 
paper was distributed and a booklet de- 
picting the history of the school was 
offered for sale. 

The school is proud of being one of the 
oldest high schools in the State.

During the first five months of the 
present fiscal year, there were 1,897,595 
volumes circulated for home use, which 
is an increase of 347,733 over the same 
period of the preceding fiscal year. 

The new Anza Branch is now consid- 
ered as one of the larger branches of 
our system, circulating about 25,000 vol- 
umes a month. 

On account of our reduced book fund 
very few new books will be added during 
the year. Consequently, it was thought 
advisable to discontinue our Monthly Bul- 
letin with the October issue until further 
notice. 

While the staff has not been reduced, 
no extensions will be made to it and 
an examination for new assistants will 
not be held before July, 1933. 

Miss Rose C. Suttey is giving a course 
in library science for probationers and 
junior assistants.

An Association of the San Francisco 
Public Library staff was organized. The 
following five members of the staff were 
elected to serve on the Executive Com- 
mittee for one year : Miss Alice M. Healy, 
Chairman, Miss Margaret Windele, Mrs. 
Ella Paine, Miss Helen Dunne, and Miss 
Anne M. Farrell. An Advisory Commit- 
tee, Social Committee and a Professional 
Committee were appointed. 

During the opera season the music de- 
partment sponsored a number of inter- 
esting talks on the various operas. 

An interesting- and valuable exhibition 
of manuscripts and firet editions of the 
works of Robert Louis Stevenson was 
held in our exhibition room. 

Mrs. Laura Armer, winner of the New- 
bery award for "Waterless Mountain" 
gave an entertaining talk on Indian life 
and customs to the staff. 

At the last monthly meeting of branch 
librarians, Mrs. Ella Paine, Librarian of 
the Anza Branch, read a paper on "The 
Comparative Values of Classification." 
rhis is one of a series of papers being 
read at each monthly meeting. 

Miss Harriet Craddock, assistant in 
the periodical department was married to 
Mr. Frank Feliz. 

It is with sincere sorrow that we re-

^Ir. Mullin died December 1. He was 
associated with the library for the past 
thirty-seven years in the capacity of 
Secretary to the Library Commission. 
He did much toward the up-building of

guests with a fascinating account of her 
adventures in the West Indies, where 
she went in search of material for her

biographical romance, "Alexander Hamil- 
ton." As 1932 was a year of centenaries, 
the Book Club observed the hundredth an- 
niversaries of three great writers — 
Lewis Carroll, Louisa May Alcott, 
and Sir Walter Scott. Ending the social 
programs of the club for the season were 
the appearances of Miss Helen Bridges, 
authoritj' on bookbinding, and Mrs. 
Maud Fay Symington, the famous opera 
star and distinguished patron of the arts, 
who spoke to the club on her expei-iences 
as an international prima donna. 

The fall activities of the group were 
by no means limited to the appearance 
of these speakers. The Freshman li- 
brary instruction, which is a semiannual 
feature, was accomplished this term in 
a slightly different manner. The libra- 
rians spoke to all of the 750 new students, 
meeting them in groups, and giving a 
period of general instruction in the use 
of the library. After this talk, a mimeo- 
graphed plan of the library was given 
to each of the students, and he was asked 
to locate upon it fifteen important fea- 
tures of the room. These plans were 
corrected as an English assignment and 
served to introduce every new student to 
the library. 

The publication of "Cabbages and 
Kings," a literary magazine sponsored 
by the Book Club, was continued this 
semester, but only one issue was dis- 
tributed, owing to the shortness of the 
term. 

The exhibits in the library, which were 
a very successful feature of the last 
spring term, were resumed, and the ex- 
hibitors included nearly all of the school 
organizations and departments. The out- 
standing gift to the library was made 
by the Associated Students, whose gener- 
osity provided a splendid collection of 
"Books for Young America."

of some of his experiences with current 
authors. 

Book Week was observed by exhibiting 
an attractive collection of books, some 
old and some new, with a special sec- 
tion for books with incidents of American 
history for a background. A ballot box 
was placed in the children's room and 
each boy or girl who visited the library 
during Book Week was allowed to vote 
for his or her favorite book. "Little 
Women" received the most votes, prob- 
ably due to the Alcott Centenary public- 
ity. The next ten books in order of 
popularity were "Rebecca of Sunnybrook 
Farm," "The Graper Girls," "Daddy- 
long-legs," "Robin Hood," "Adventures 
of Tom Sawyer," "Heidi," "The Disap- 
pearance of Anne Shaw," "Little Maid 
of New Orleans," "Pep," and "Five Little 
Peppers and How They Grew." The li- 
brarian made five book talks at P. T. A. 
and other meetings using as her text 
"Books for a wider vision" and quoting 
from Dorothy Canfield Fisher's editorial 
in "Publishers' Weekly" for August 27, 
1932.

Circulation records have shown that 
the library has been very active during 
the past several months. On Saturday, 
December 3, we had a circulation of 
1539 over the main desk at Stockton. 
This is the largest circulation ever 
recorded for a single day. This does not 
include the county branches or the county 
school department. 

Holophane stack lights have been in- 
stalled over the fiction stacks. This is 
a great improvement to the general read- 
ing room. 

Mr. Norman Wenger, who has been a 
member of the staff for a number of years, 
tendered his resignation in November to 
enter the office of Mr. F. Harrison, pub- 
lic accountant. Miss Dorothy Reynolds, 
a former library assistant, has been 
appointed a member of the staff. 

During the month of September the 
Young People's Department conducted a

The Stockton Music Teachers' Asso- 
ciation is cooperating with the library 
in presenting monthly musical programs. 
The first of this series was given Novem- 
ber 5 with Miss Mary Amelia Fuller in 
charge of the program. The music hour 
was called "A prelude to Book Week" 
and featured vocal and instrumental 
selections. 

The programs during Book Week 
attracted many visitors to the Young 
People's Department where the theme 
of "Books for Young America" was car- 
ried out in the display of new books to- 
gether with book-lists, posters, and wall 
decorations. The Reading Club mem- 
bers paraded as book characters on the 
stage of the Fox California Theatre dur- 
ing the Mickey Mouse Club hour. During

each participant related the story of the 
character he or she portrayed.

It is felt that the best results yet 
obtained followed the Book Week cele- 
bration this year. A fine exhibit of new 
books and posters was held at the library 
and the librarian on successive days dur- 
ing the week visited all of the elementary 
schools taking the most attractive of the 
new books to the schools and giving talks 
about them. On the afternoon of the 
first day that the new books were allowed 
for circulation, one hundred and sixty-six 
children came to the library for them 
and by six o'clock not a new book was

have been, residents of Palo Alto or

names. There were also tables of the 
newer books, arranged by age groups ; a 
display of pictures and books for nature 
study ; a table of Newbery prize books ; 
a group of picture books by European 
and American artists; and a collection 
of books for parents on children's read- 
ing. 

The cooperation of teachers and par- 
ents in the visits of school children to the 
exhibition was secured at a meeting called 
at the library, before Book Week and 
attended by representatives from each of 
the schools and the Parent-Teacher Asso- 
ciation. The library's plans for Book 
Week were presented by Miss Marjorie 
Frink, the librarian in charge of children's 
work. It was decided to follow the plan 
first tried last year-, but to include more 
grades in the visits to the display. A day 
or a half day was assigned to each school 
and the children, accompanied by their 
teachers, visited the library by groups dur- 
ing school hours. The librarian in charge 
of children's work met each group and 
spoke briefiy on Book Week and on 
books of interest to each age group. 

The gallery was also open every after- 
noon and evening for individual visits by 
the children and general public. 

On Thursday evening the library in- 
vited the older children of the community 
to an Indian program, given by Frank 
Howell of San Francisco, consisting of 
colored slides, a motion pic"tui-e of Indian 
legends, and a story told in the Indian 
sign language. 

Friday morning a group of mothers 
and others interested in children's books 
met to see the exhibit and for a talk 
by the librarian in charge of children's 
work. Plans were made for a series of 
meetings to discuss children's books and 
reading, the first meeting to be held at 
the library, Wednesday, December 1. 

Two talks on Book Week and on chil- 
dren's reading interests were given by 
Miss Frink at Parent-Teacher meetings, 
in the week preceding Book Week, one 
at Lytton School and one at Mayfield. 

A very helpful spirit was shown by 
local papers in publishing special articles 
and announcements ; by the school chil- 
dren in making book posters, etc. ; and

of the Book Week activity in almost 
ever.v column. There were displays of 
old books and displays of new books,

history of the Book Week movement in 
San Jose High School. The celebration 
of Book Week was the one outside accom-

Since no extra work was done this

the books, mended those in need of repair, 
and has her card-catalog in excellent 
order. She classified a new lot of books 
donated by the last graduating class and 
made display cards for them. She has 
put old magazines, arranged as to years,

On November 2 Mrs. Constance Mitchell 
of the Sather Gate Book Shop spoke in 
Petaluma on new children's books at a 
meeting of the Council of the Parent- 
Teacher Association. Those who had the 
privilege of hearing her will long remem- 
ber the books of which she spoke and 
also the delightfully entertaining manner 
in Avhich she told of them. 

Children's Book Week was observed 
;it the Petaluma Public Library Novem- 
ber 13 to 19. The outstanding feature of 
the display this year was the Book House. 
A miniature house made of cardboard, 
whose roof was shingled with book 
jackets, was placed on a platform at the 
head of the stairs on the mezzanine floor 
of the library. At the foot of the stair- 
way was a large sign saying "The Path- 
way to the Book House." At intervals 
along the staii-way were trees cut from 
green cardboard, making the stairs a fairy 
pathway for the children who came to see 
the house. 

On the platform surrounding the house 
was a niiniature pond, upon which two 



SONOMA CO.— Continued 
Peta I u m a — Continued 
of the seven swans had lighted, being 
attracted to the pond by Old Mother 
Goose and Winnie-the-Pooh who stood 
near. In the j'ard one could also find 
Pinocchio, Alice from Wonderland, the 
Dutch and the Eskimo Twins and many 
other characters well known and much 
loved from bookland. The new books 
were displayed on tables near the Book 
House. 

A special display was made of Louisa 
IMay Alcott's books in commemoration 
of the centenary of her birth. Booklets 
telling of her life, and provided by Sather 
Gate Book Shop, were given to patrons 
of the library and to the teachers of each 
classroom as they brought their classes 
to visit the library. 

To close the week a Story Hour was 
held on Saturday morning November 19, 
with 131 boys and girls in attendance to 
hear the librarian tell again some of the 
fairy tales and myths which should be 
part of every child's literai-y heritage. 

This year — as last year — we tried to 
make our appeal to the community broad 
enough to reach in some way everyone 
in the community. Letters, inviting people 
to visit the library during the week, were 
sent to the members of the City Council, 
the School Board, the Library Board, 
each school principal, to several people 
connected with the local newspaper and 
to those patrons who have remembered 
during the past year that flowers can 
do much to make our library attractive. 

Book Week entails an expenditure of 
time, money, and energy on the part of 
the library and at the close of Book 
Week month some of us may find our- 
selves asking — is it all worth while? 

And for myself I feel that I can answer 
at once and emphatically. Yes. But for 
those who may question it all I wish to 
tell a story. The story of a sixth grade 
boy who had lived in Petaluma for all 
of his school life and who had never 
before known that there was a library 
in his city. He was brought here by his 
teacher during Book Week, he was made 
to feel welcome and wanted in the library, 
he was given a card and was personally 
helped in the selection of his fii'St library 
book. And he hag conje back a second

and third time and I know that he will 
come again, thereby giving the library 
an opportunity to help in making a 
worth while citizen, giving the library an 
opportunity to be of very real educational 
service to this boy who is learning that : 

Books are keys to wisdom's treasure ; 

Books are ships to lands of pleasure ; 

Books are paths that upward lead ; 

Books are friends. Come ! Let us read.

Book Week at the Santa Rosa Public 
I.,ibrary this year, carried with it an un- 
usual interest, for with it came Louisa 
May Alcott, celebrating her one hun- 
dredth anniversary. 

Throughout the week classes from the 
elementary schools visited the library. 
In addition to the many beautiful new 
books on display, there was a most inter- 
esting collection of curios from many 
lands, and dolls from all nations came 
to pay their respects to the celebrated 
author. Several of these dolls had come 
around the Horn in sailing vessels ; others 
proudly claimed ages ranging from ninety 
to one hundred. 

About the children's room were minia- 
ture stages, representing various fairy 
tales. These had been loaned by the 
classes of the Burbank School. 

Saturday morning, the week closed 
with a grand finale, when four hundred 
and fifty children came to Louisa Alcott's 
birthday party. Aunt Jo, Meg, Beth 
and Amy appeared in person in a short 
scene from "Little Women," after which 
Aunt Jo told stories to the younger chil- 
dren. After the awarding of prizes in 
the Vacation Reading Club, the conclud- 
ing feature came in the cutting of a huge 
birthday cake. Every boy and girl had 
a tiny piece of cake, and noisily pro- 
claimed the Book Week festivities a glori- 
ous success.

Book Week was celebrated in the 
branches of the county library with small 
but delightful collections of new books, 
and posters of Louisa May Alcott, to 
whom Book Week was dedicated this 
year. 

In the school department at the main 
library there was a display of Book Week 
projects carried out by various schools, 
the main project being literary maps, 
which were very cleverly executed. There 
were also book covers, posters calling 
attention to good reading and care of 
books. Blue and red ribbon awlfirds 
were made by the Board of Education, 
who consented to act as judges. 

The county librarian and her school 
assistant, Mrs. Ruth DeHart, were in- 
vited upon the stage the first morning 
of Teachers' Institute in Modesto, Novem- 
ber 21, and when asked "for a few 
words," told about Book Week and its 
display which had been held over for 
Institute Week and urged the teachers 
to visit the library. The response was 
eager and immediate, the teachers com- 
ing from not only the elementary schools 
but from the high schools and junior col- 
lege as well. The county librarian and 
school assistant were guests of honor at 
the County Teachers Association lunch- 
eon which concluded the Institute. 

The county librarian was the speaker 
at the Modesto .Tunior College Faculty 
Women's Club, September 21, when she 
reviewed some of the new books of the 
fall. She was also the speaker at the 
Truthseeker's Class, of the Friends' 
Church, Denair, November 2, at which 
time she gave a talk on The Cathedrals 
of England.

In the children's room of the city li-

city schools were received and given re- 
views of books and stories. There was a 
display of new books for them to look 
at following the reviews. A feature was 
a display of old books brought in by 
patrons on request, and these were a 
source of interest to adult patrons as well 
as the young people. 

Mrs. Ruth Nankeville, in charge of 
the Boys and Girls Room, was the 
speaker at the Lincoln School P. T. A. 
a few days before Book Week, when she 
talked about children's books and showed 
some of the outstanding ones. 

"Centenaries celebrated in 1932" was 
the theme for the Book Week exhibit in 
the Reference and Reading Room in the 
city library, and its books and pictures 
attracted much attention.

A year ago we had a large room for 
the library built on the west wing of the 
school and adjoining the study hall. All 
reference books are kept in the library 
and the pupils are free to come to the li- 
brary for reference work at any time. 
We have ten large tables which will each 
seat four persons. Student helpers take 
care of the desk and the teacher-librarian 
is free to help the pupils with their 
themes and reference material. We have 
a large number of our magazines bound. 
With the Reader's Guide we find these 
bound volumes very useful. 

The library looks after the textbooks 
for our 500 pupils. 

Our school library tries to work with 
our very fine city library as much as 
possible. Miss Can-oil, the city librarian, 
is very willing to cooperate with us at 
all times. About 45 per cent of our 
pupils come from out of town so that 
they are not able to use our city library 
vei-y frequently.

We are feeling pleased about Boot 
Week this year because it demonstrated 
the feeling of cooperation and sympathy 
which has been built up between the li- 
brary and the schools. The girls of one 
of the high school reading clubs took 
charge of the exhibits the first three days 
of the week. The high school art depart- 
ment had been holding a competitive 
poster contest, each poster to advertise 
Book Week or illustrate some book or 
play. The results were excellent and 
the prize — a book — went to the girl who 
drew a striking negro head in illustration 
of Green Pastures. 

During the last three days, the display 
tables were covered with books for the

little people, and posters done by the 
children of the Ranch School were dis- 
played, the prize going to a little girl of 
nine years. In the glass case we had 
lovely little scenes built with tiny hand- 
carved figui-es from Vienna, the Schwarz- 
wald, and other places, each one illustrat- 
ing a book. These were changed daily. 

Revision of the shelf list is well under 
way. 

Plans for opening a reading room in 
the Mexican center are being carried for- 
ward rapidly. The shelving is in and 
painted, the tables have been shellacked, 
and some books and magazines have been 
moved down. The custodians will be

The librarian has made talks or given 
book reviews at the Ebell Club, the

ill honor of the School Libraries Associa- 
tion, the Special Libraries Association 
and the County Librarians, there will be

DISTRICT MEETINGS 
Fifth District Meeting 

At the call of the District President, 
Mrs. Irma C. Bruton. librarian of the 
Woodland Public Library, about seventy 
library workers of the Fifth District 
assembled in Woodland on Saturday, 
November 5, 1932. The morning session, 
held in the Board of Trade room in the 
Yolo County Court House, was. devoted to 
library matters. The president of the 
State association, John B. Kaiser of Oak- 
land, reported some of the activities of 
the National and State library associa- 
tions since their annual meetings last 
May. He also announced the 1933 meet- 
ing of the California Library Association, 
to be held in Oakland next April 9-12. 

In the absence of Miss Mabel R. Gillis, 
State Librarian, who was unable to at- 
tend the meeting. Miss Eleanor Hitt, her 
assistant, spoke on recent material com- 
piled by the certification, library schools, 
and salaries committees of the California 
Library Association, and gave a resume 
of the special report made by the certifi- 
cation committee at the last annual meet- 
ing. Miss Anna G. Hall, formerly in 
charge of the Longview Public Library in 
Washington, told of various ways in 
which she now occupies her time and 
keeps up her professional interests while 
living at her home in Davis. Miss Hall's 
program includes book reviewing, play 
reading, advice to parents on selection of 
their children's books, and the selling and 
renting of books. 

Miss Edith Gantt, librarian of the 



Solano County Library at Fairfield, told 
of the recent organization of discussion 
groups in several communities. This is 
one of the most interesting and concrete 
phases of adult education and the organiz- 
ation of these community forums was 
sponsored by Miss Gantt, working under 
the advice and inspiration of Lyman 
Bryson, director of the California Associa- 
tion for Adult Education. 

At noon the members adjourned to 
Hotel Woodland where the program was 
resumed after a luncheon and a musical 
progi-am. The first talk was given by 
T. H. Crook of Woodland, who told in- 
formally of some of his personal expe- 
riences in South America. Mr. Crook 
spent a number of years in various coun- 
tries of South America as a geologist for 
the Standard Oil Company. The informa- 
tion which he gave was of special interest 
because it was based upon actual observa- 
tion and colored by his obvious enjoyment 
of new experiences. 

The program was delightfully con- 
cluded by Herbert C. Davis of Sacra- 
mento, who talked on some of the famous 
"Ghost Cities" of Nevada. Mr. Davis 
is an exceptionally fine speaker, with rare 
gift of narrative and a marked sense of 
the dramatic most appropriate to the 
romantic tales of Virginia City and the 
Comstock Mine. 

Sixth District Meeting 

Nearly 600 librarians from the nine 
southern counties of California represent- 
ing the Sixth District of the California 
Library Association, met at the annual 
district convention held in the Pasadena 
Civic Auditorium, November 19, 1932. 
Miss Helen E. Vogleson, Los Angeles 
County Librarian, and President of the 
Sixth District, presided. 

One of the most important matters con- 
sidered by the meeting was the recom- 
mendation of the establishment of an ad- 
vanced school for library training in 
southern California. The recommenda- 
tion was carried by practically unanimous 
vote. The new school, it was stated, 
should be organized to take the place of 
the school formerly conducted in the Los 
Angeles Public Library, and if started, 
probably will become a gi*aduate division 
of a college or university in this section. 



vol. 28, no. 1] 



CALIFORNIA LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



Miss Cornelia Plaister, San Diego Li- 
brarian, announced results of a recent 
survey of library employment conditions 
in counties comprising the Sixth District. 
She reported that in a single year 636 
applications for library positions in this 
district were made, but that due to the 
fact that some applicants applied at more 
than one library, 328 persons actually 
sought positions. Of this number, she 
explained, 54 had completed short li- 
brary courses, 60 possessed no training, 
and 214 were library school graduates, 
with college training. Seventy-four of 
these 214 were employed and seeking 
transfers to other posts. Of these quali- 
fied unemployed librarians, 19 were found 
to be 1932 library school graduates, and 
31 possessed as much as five years' ex- 
perience. Five of this last group had 
been ill or on leave of absence, thus leav- 
ing only 26 librarians who might be 
classed as experts out of work. Miss 
Plaister's report concluded that the over- 
supply of librarians is not serious and 
that any up turn in business conditions 
will result in a general call for additional 
librarians in southern California. Adop- 
tion of the committee's recommendation 
followed Miss Plaister's report. 

The relation of the public school and 
the library was discussed by outstanding 
authorities, among them Mrs. Lorraine 
Miller Sherer, Director of Curriculum of 
the Los Angeles County school system ; 
Miss Jasmine Britton, Supervising Libra- 
rian of the rx»s Angeles dty school sys- 
tem, and Mrs. Theodora Brewitt, Long 
Beach Librarian. The various speakers 
agreed that due to the increase in the 
number of subjects taught in school, the 
kind of direction needed to guide the 
children in their studies, and the limited 
facilities of libraries, the only solution is 
to organize school libraries under specially 
trained librarians. 

Miss Althea Warren reviewed the ques- 
tion of dividing the Sixth District and at 
the close of her digest the meeting voted 
not to divide and to add Inyo County to 
the present district. 

Miss Eleanor Hitt. of the California 
State library, and a member of the Cer- 
tification Committee of the California Li- 
brary Association, spoke on the profes- 
sional and nonprofessional library tasks 



and the increasing need for specially 
trained librarians. 

The appointment by the chair, of two 
committees was sanctioned ; the function 
of one committee will be to check and 
compile a list of public documents, county 
and city, found or published in southern 
California. The other committee will be 
a joint committee composed of school and 
library people, and the purpose will be to 
make a study of library service to schools. 

Mrs. Laura Adams Armer, artist and 
author, winner of the 1932 John New- 
bery medal presented annually by the 
American Librai*y Association for the best 
book for children, as author of "Water- 
less Mountain," spoke most charmingly 
and interestingly of her experiences on 
the Navajo Reservation while painting 
scenes from the myths and legends of 
the Indians. 

The afternoon session concluded with a 
tableau. "California Ladies of Long Ago," 
presented by Mrs. C. W. Young, posed by 
staff members of the Los Angeles County 
Library, which was a charming and col- 
orful close to what was declared to be 
a most interesting and successful meeting. 

Mr. E. O. Nay, Chairman of the Pasa- 
dena Board of City Directors, welcomed 
the convention on behalf of the city of 
Pasadena, and Mr. John Boyntou Kaiser, 
President of the California Library Asso- 
ciation, extended greetings to the Sixth 
District. 

Eighth-Ninth District Meeting 
The annual meeting of the Eighth and 
Ninth Districts, California Library Asso- 
ciation, was held at a one-session dinner 
meeting at the Tremont Hotel, Red Bluff, 
on Saturday, October 10, 1932. Miss 
Anne Bell Bailey, librarian, Tehama 
County Free Library, and president of 
the joint district, had prepared a very 
interesting program. She was assisted 
by the secretary, Mrs. Neva Hornbeck, 
librarian, Herbert Kraft Free Library, 
Red Bluff. 

More than one hundred visitors and 
Tehama County people were present. 
Practically every organization in the 
county was represented at the meeting. 
G. L. Childs, member of the Tehama 
County Board of Supervisors, welcomed 
the visitors most graciously. Visiting li- 
brarians, custodians of Tehama County

[Jan., 1933 



Library branches, and representatives of 
county organizations were introduced to 
the assemblage by Miss Bailey. 

From the standpoint of the layman, 
Senator John J. Moran of Corning spoke 
very convincingly on the subject, "The 
Free Public Library — A Necessity." 

The principal address of the evening 
was made by Miss Mabel R. Gillis, State 
Librarian, whose subject was "The Free 
Public Library — A Luxury or a Neces- 
sity." She gave most impressive figures 



showing the marked increases in the use 
of the public library everywhere in Cali- 
fornia, notably during this period of en- 
forced leisure through unemployment. Any 
doubts the audience may have had as to 
the public library being a necessity were 
dispelled by Miss Gillis in her able presen- 
tation of the subject. 

Sunday a number of the librarians 
spent the day on a trip to Lassen Volcanic 
National Park.

LIBRARY CLUBS, ETC. 



Under this heading will be given ac- 
counts of meetings of the various library 
clubs and similar organizations through- 
out the State. News items of the various 
clubs are solicited. 

PASADENA LIBRARY CLUB 

Pasadena Library Club members were 
delightfully entertained at The Athe- 
naeum, Tuesday evening, November 29, 
as guests of Miss Frances H. Spining, li- 
brarian of the California Institute of 
Technology. 

In opening the meeting, Miss Eleanor 
M. Homer, president of the club, men- 
ticmed that happily, although accidentally, 
a literary date on which to convene had 
been chosen, as November 29, 1932. 
marked the one hundredth anniversary 
of Louisa M. Alcott's birth. 

Miss Helen E. Vogleson, 6th District 
President, California Library Association, 
gave a resume of the Sixth District 
meeting held in Pasadena November 19. 

An address on "The Stream of Con- 
sciousness Novel" by Dr. Harvey S. 
Eagleson, assistant professor and popular 
member of the Humanities Department at 
the California Institute, was the feature 
of the evening. In developing his sub- 
ject, Prof. Eagleson cited and read pas- 
sages from the works of Marcel Proust, 
James Joyce and Dorothy Richardson, 
the three authors he had chosen to 
represent the t>rincipal types of the 
stream of consciousness technique. 

The evening closed with a social hour. 
Rtjama M. Coit, Secretary. 

THE LOS ANGELES SCHOOL 
LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 

The Lo« Angeles School Library Asso- 
ciation has always observed the delightful 
custom of mixing business with pleasure, 
and this year, in spite of all the bugaboos 
that threaten, the practice seems to be as 
much in favor as ever. The business 



meetings are held at various places ; some- 
times in the library of one of the schools, 
or in the lecture room of the Public Li- 
brary ; more often in a cosy tearoom or 
a hospitable club. And after the business 
of the day is concluded perhaps there 
will be tea, or occasionally a dinner, some- 
times with guests of distinction in the 
literary or educational worlds. 

The climax of the November meeting 
was an informal and entertaining dinner 
for our superintendents. Dr. William 
Burton of the University of Chicago, 
now visiting professor at the University 
of Southern California, was the guest 
speaker of the evening. His enthusiastic 
talk on "Book Week in Russia" was 
illustrated with huge, brilliantly colored 
posters which he had obtained in Moscow. 
The guests of honor were Superintendent 
and Mrs. Frank A. Bouelle, Assistant 
Superintendent and Mrs. Warren C. Con- 
rad, Assistant Superintendent and Mrs. 
Arthur Gould, Assistant Superintendent 
and Mrs. A. B. Pierce, and Dr. William 
B. Featherstone of the Curriculum Divi- 
sion. 

The previous meeting was held in the 
new Edward L. Doheny, Jr., ' Memorial 
Library at the University of Southern 
California. Robert Frost was a sur- 
prise feature and everyone was delighted 
to hear him recite some of his "rhymes." 
After the business meeting Miss Charlotte 
Brown conducted a tour of the library 
and explained the high i>oints of interest 
concerning the decorative and architec- 
tural details of the vast and magnificent 
building. 

The officers of the association for the 
current year are Miss Dorothy Drake, Li- 
brarian of Venice High School, president ; 
and Miss Elsie Brown, Assistant Libra- 
rian of Fremont High School, secretary- _ 
treasurer. 
DoKis Betjsh Payne, Publicity Chairman.

nished on request. 

Books sent to individuals fron an in- 
stitution distributing embossed literature 
are carried free through the mails. 

Embossed catalogs of the earlier mate- 
rial in American Braille, Moon and New 
York point are available. They will be 
loaned to borrowers wishing them for use 
in book selection. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library up to October 1, 1926, and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone 
requesting it. 

The State Library will be glad to have 
borrowers who care to do so write any 
letters or requests for books to the Li- 
brary in Braille or New York point. 

Attention of the borrowers is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li-

brary should always be placed inside 
mail boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to 
send post card receipts or requests to the 
Library inside of books. When books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
uaonths. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Books may he kept one month. At the 
end of that period they will be renewed on 
request unless the demand for them is so 
great that renewal is not feasible. 

At the last session of Congress an an- 
nual appropriation of $100,000 was made 
for providing books for adult blind. This 
work is handled by the Library of Con- 
gress with the books pi-inted at or pur- 
chased from various printing houses. 
The California State Library has been 
designated as one of the centers to receive 
the books printed from this appropriation. 
Several titles have been received and are 
reported currently in the list of books 
added with the note that they are pro- 
vided by the United States government 
through the Library of Congress. 

The first book was loaned June 1.3, 
1905. There are now 3243 blind borrow-

CALIFORNIA COUNTY LIBRARIANS 



MRS. JULIA G. BABCOCK 

Mrs. Julia G. Babcock, librarian of 
Kern County Free Library, Bakersfield, 
for seventeen years died January 21, 1933. 
While she had been ill for the preceding 
I three months her death was unexpected 
and was a great shock to California 
librarians. 

Mrs. Babcock was assistant librarian 
of Kern County from March, 1913, until 
May, 1914, when she was appointed 
librarian of Yolo County Library, Wood- 



land, and served there until January 1, 
1916, when she was made librarian of 
Kern County. 

Mrs. Babcock's accomplishments in the 
Kern County Library are known to every- 
one. She will be remembered equally 
well, however, for her loyalty to the 
library cause and her earnestness and 
enthusiasm in working for her high 
library ideals. Her very active leader- 
ship in county library circles especially 
will be greatly missed.

QUARTERLY NOTES 

On January 27 Miss Gillis was guest 
speaker at a Reciprocity Luncheon of the 
Daughters of the American Revolution in 
San Francisco. During the last ten days 
of February, Miss Gillis was away from 
Sacramento attending to library business 
in other parts of the State. She spoke at 
the Fourth District C. L. A. meeting at 
Hanford on the 17th, going on from there 
to Los Angeles. While in the south she 
met informally with the county librarians 
from the southern counties. Miss Vogle- 
son . acted as hostess for this meeting, 
which was held in the Los Angeles County 
Library, February 22. Miss Gillis spent 
the 23d and 24th of the month visiting 
libraries in Santa Clara County and then 
attended a meeting of the Second and 
Third Districts of the C. L. A. at San 
Mateo on the 25th. She was one of the 
luncheon speakers at this gathering. Miss 
Hitt and Miss Mumm joined Miss Gillis 
at San Mateo on February 25 to attend 



the meeting of the Second and Third 
Districts 

On March 1 William McDougall, our 
newest library page, resigned to accept 
a position as messenger in the State Con- 
troller's office. He was succeeded by 
Harold Carlson. Miss Catherine Kuch- 
man has been doing practice work in the 
library during this quarter. She is a 
graduate of University of California, class 
of 1932, and expects to enter a library 
training course in the fall. 

The State Library staff is represented 
in a new collection of poems called Cali- 
fornia Poets, an anthology of 244 con- 
temporaries. Miss Helen Maughmer, 
junior librarian in the Reference Section, 
has six poems in this collection and 
Lincoln Fitzell, who began his career as 
messenger in the State Library, is also 
represented in the compilation. Miss 
Mary Virginia Provines, formerly of our 
staff, is included in California Writers 
Club. Poems. 1932. 

Two staff meetings were held during 
the quarter. The first one on January 
9 Avas for the selection of officers for 
1933. As a result of this election Mr. 
Clayton is now staff president. Miss 
Bertha Taylor vice president and William 
Simmons, secretary-treasurer. Executive' 
committee members are Mrs. Richards 
and William Lyons. At the second meet- 
ing, February 6, Miss Gillis discussed 
legislative matters of concern to the State 
Library. 

Under the revised constitution of the 
Sacramento Chapter of the California 
State Employees Association all the em- 
ployees in the State Library Building 
were combined into one group and for the 
purpose of forming an election unit of 
the proper number the group from 
Natural Resources was added. Miss Car- 
melita Duff was chosen as the State Li- 
brary representative on the standing com- 
mittee of the group to which we belong. 

Since March 1 the Law and Legislative 
Reference Section has been keeping open 
until 6 o'clock and beginning April 1 all 
the circulating departments of the Library 
will be open on Saturday afternoon until 
the close of the legislative session. 

The February meeting of the Sacra- 
mento Statistical Association was devoted 
to the State Library. At the regular din- 
ner meeting Miss GUlis outlined the func- 
tions of the State Library and described 



vol. 28, no. 2]

ing. The meeting then adjourned to the 
State Library and staff representatives 
conducted the members of the Association 
through all the departments of the li- 
brary.

tional institution on request of its official 
bead or its librarian ; to individuals 
through the signature of a State officer, 
of the librarian of the local library or 
of the official head of any other educa- 
tional institution or on receipt of a $5.00 
dtijosit ; to a club on request of its presi- 
dent, secretary or librarian. 

The following statement, recently com- 
piled for the National Theater Con- 
ference, New York City, may be helpful 
to the libraries of California : 

The State Library has, in the first 
place, rather a comprehensive collection of 
material on the drama ; in the second 
place, it has endeavored to organize that 
material for a maximum of efficiency. 

The collection of plays, particularly 
American and English, is a large one, 
making available to the general reader or 
student practically all the plays of the 
outstanding playwrights of historical and 
contemporary interest, and at the same 
time supplying the better type of ma- 
terial to the amateur who is "looking for 
a play to put on." In the field of 
children's dramatics, again the State 
Library has rather a complete collection. 
As for books about the drama, particular 
stress has been laid upon contemporary 
trends. 

Our organization of this material might 
prove useful to smaller libraries which 
must make the most of a little. Aside 
from checking the printed indexes to 
plays, supplementary subject lists have 
been compiled — that is, one act plays 
suitable for use in schools have been 
classified under the various headings most 
often called for, classified more closely, 
in more detail, than are the printed in- 
dexes. These lists are more or less 
briefly annotated for plot, number and 
sex of characters, age, group, etc., etc., 
etc., to bring into fullest use the material 
on hand. 

Of late, material on marionettes has 
been in great demand. Again we have 
listed plays suitable for marionettes, have 
analyzed our books on marionettes in- 
dicating the type of material included 
(construction, production, etc.) 

Often requests come to us for pictures 
of other productions of a given play, or 
the design of some artist for a given 
scene. To fill these requests, we have 
analyzed carefully the illustrations in our 
books on the contemporary theater, on 
stage design, on play production. In this 



way there is no lost time poring over 
available books, and reporting "Not in 
State Library," only to have the desired 
material in some book which is out but 
could later be used. 

In the same way we have analyzed our 
books containing folk dances which are 
likely to be used in conjunction with 
dramatic pi'oductions. These lists are 
compiled by nationality and by name 
(original and in translation) of each 
dance. 

These bibliographies, in card index 
form, are, of course, not incorporated in 
the general catalog, but kept in the refer- 
ence section.

CALIFORNIA SECTION 

I^^UDOBA Garoutte, Supervising Libra- 
rian. 

The California Section aims to have a 
thoroughly good collection of books on the 
listory and description, resources and 
jidustries of the State, as well as the 
works of California authors in all depart- 
:ncnts of literature. These are made ac- 
•essible by means of a card catalog. Full 
names and biographical sketches of Cali- 
fornia authors, artists, musicians, pioneers 
and early settlers are being secured, to- 
^ethei- with their photographs. The col- 
lection of bound periodicals is quite large. 
The Section also contains over 12,000 
bound volumes of newspapers, a file of 
which is being indexed with reference to 
■he history of the State. Students will be 
assisted in their work. 

Pioneers and Early Settlers 

James Gregson crossed the Sierras with 
the Grigsby-Ide company of overland emi- 
grants in 1845. Many of them were mem- 
bers of the Bear Flag party in 1846. Mr. 
Gregson was a blacksmith and was at 
Coloma during the building of the mill. 
His home was in Sonoma County for 
many years. His death occurred on 
August 2, 1899. 

Charles Archibald Clevenger arrived in 
California in 1849. He came overland by 



vol. 28, no. 2]

oxtrain and settled in San Jose in 1852, 
having returned to Missouri and brought 
out his family. Mr. Clevenger became a 
farmer in Santa Clara County. 

We have also received the card of his 
son John Clevenger, who arrived with his 
father in 1852. 

Orrin Bennett Gibson came to Califor- 
nia in 1850 via the Isthmus of Panama. 
Mr. Gibson was a master mariner, also 
U. S. Collector of Internal Revenue at 
Portland, Oregon, during the Grant ad- 
ministration. He was an early resident 
of San Francisco, where he died July 3, 
1903. 

The card of Alfred David Hobson, a 
pioneer of 1850, has been sent by his son, 
J. C. Hobson, accompanied by a very 
interesting biography of his father which 
ran serially in the Santa Rosa Press 
Democrat September 8-11, 1932. 

Thomas Hankerson Read arrived in 
1850, and was in the 1856 session of the 
Legislature from Placerville, and had at 
(Die time the distinction of being "magis- 
trate" at Yankee Jini's, one of Califor- 
nia's noted mining camps. 

Alexander Pope Read, a half brother of 
Thomas Hankerson Read, also arrived in 
1850. Mr. Read brought four of his six 
sons with him, all of whom have sons 
living in California with the exception of 
James T. Read. 

Other cards received are as follows : 

Mrs. Yetta Alexander. 

Henry E. Palfrey. 

John M, Waid.

PRINTS SECTION 

Bektha S. Taylor, Librarian. 

The Prints Section has been estab- 
lished only since the new State Library 
was occupied in August, 1928. In it are 
kept the prints acquired by the State Li- 
brary for several years past and now for 
the first time suitably housed and dis- 
played. In display cases can be shown 
about fifty prints at a time and exhibits 
are constantly maintained. Visitors are 
invited. 

3112 prints have now been cataloged. 
There were 957 visitors in the Prints 
Room during the past three months. 

The annual exhibit from the Print 
Makers Society of California was contin- 
ued through January. In February the 
exhibit consisted of etchings and drypoints 
by A. Ray Burrell of San Francisco, lent 
by the artist, and lithographs by Stanley 
Wood and Stafford Duncan, lent by Vick- 
ery, Atkins and Torrey. On February 9 
Mr. Burrell came to Sacramento to spend 
the day in the Prints Room. The exhibit 
in March was a collection of etchings, 
drypoints and lithographs by Albert Ster- 
ner lent by Courvoisier's gallery in San 
Francisco. 

On January 25 Dr. William B. Pettus, 
who had previously presented the library 
with eight Chinese paintings, gave a talk 
in the Prints Room on the subject of 
Chinese painting. The talk was attended 
by nearly a hundred Sacramentans inter- 
ested in art. 

The prints librarian made six talks dur- 
ing the quarter. These talks were at 
clubs in various nearby communities,

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES [April, 1933 



BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 

Mabel R. Ghxis, in charge. 

Embossed books in the various types 
are sent to any blind resident in Cali- 
fornia upon application. Circular and 
finding list, with call slip postal, will be 
sent on request. Writing appliances and 
games for the blind are loaned as samples 
to those wishing to buy such articles, so 
that the different kinds can be tried be- 
fore they are ordered. Addresses of firms 
supplying all articles loaned will be fur- 
nished on request. 

Books sent to individuals from an in- 
stitution distributing embossed literature 
are cari-ied free through the mails. 

Embossed catalogs of the earlier mate- 
rial in American Braille, Moon and New 
York point are available. They will be 
loaned to borrowers wishing them for use 
in book selection. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library up to October 1, 1926, and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone 
requesting it. 

The State Library will be glad to have 
borrowers who care to do so write any 
letters or requests for books to the Li- 
brary in Braille or New York point. 

Attention of the borrowers is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside 
mail boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request boiTowers not to 
send post card receipts or requests to the 
Library inside of books. ^^Tien books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Books may be kept one month. At the 
end of that period they will be renewed on 
request unless the demand for them is so 
great that renewal is not feasible. 

At the 1931 session of Congress an an- 
nual appropriation of $100,000 was made 
for providing books for adult blind. This 
work is handled by the Library of Con- 
gress with the books printed at or pur- 
chased from various printing houses. 
The California State Library has been 
designated as one of the centers to receive 
the books printed from this appropriation. 
Several titles have been received and are 
reported currently in the list of books 
added with the note that they are pro- 
vided by the United States government 
through the Library of Congress. 

The first book was loaned June 13, 
1905. There are now 3278 blind borrow- 
ers, 35 borrowers having been added dur- 
ing January, February and March. Total 
accessions are 32,906, as follows : New 
York point books 2909 ; New York point 
music 188 ; American Braille books 3146 ;

Home Teaching 

Kate M. Foley, home teacher of the 
blind, is at the Argyle Apartments, 146 
McAllister street, San Francisco, every 
Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Her 
telephone number is Market 0690. She 
gives lessons regulai'ly in the bay region 
and the Santa Clara Valley, witb occa- 
sional trips to other parts of the State. 
Cathai'ine J. Morrison, home teacher of 
the blind, is at the Los Angeles County 
Free Library, Broadway Annex, Hall of 
Records, the first Wednesday of each 
month. Her home address is 951 S. Ken- 
more ave., Los Angeles. Her telephone 
number is Fitzroy 3251. She gives les- 
sons regularly in Los Angeles and vicinity 
and makes occasional trips to San Diego. 

From January 1 to March 31, home 
teachers gave 661 lessons in the homes of 
the blind and 32 lessons in libraries. They 
made 214 visits and calls in connection 
with the work for purposes other than 
giving lessons, and have received 43 visits 
in connection with the work. 

During the quarter Miss Foley and 
Miss Morrison spent 416 hours on corre- 
spondence and preparing lessons. They 
wrote 491 letters and 250 postals and

CALIFORNIA COUNTY LIBRARIANS 

MARGARET LIVINGSTON 

"Some lark like soaring spirit sang above my battle-field." — Neihardt. 

In Oakland during the California Library Association meeting, Margaret 
Livingston with characteristic bravei-y told me she had a fatal illness. When she 
left me she gave me a slip of paper on which was written the quotation given above. 
It expresses so well the impression she gave of being upheld by more than human 
strength that I am quoting it here for the comfort of her devoted friends. 

Miss Livingston died May 3, 1933, three weeks after returning from the Cali- 
fornia Librai-y Association meeting. She had been in librai-y Avork in this State for 
sixteen years, first for a brief time in the Los Angeles Public Librai-y, then in the 
Tehama County Library for a year, after that for thi-ee years as librarian of the 



vol. 28, no. 3] California county librarians 193 

Colusa County T^ibrary, and since 1921 as librarian of the Orange County Library, 
which she started. Miss Livingston, aside from being a thoroughly competent 
librarian, had a beauty and strength of character which endeared her to everyone 
with whom she came in contact. Her library associates as well as the users of 
the County Libra i-y over which she presided will never forget her interest in library 
development, her devotion to her friends, her courage in illness, her unselfishness in 
every phase of her life — M. R. G. 

NEW COUNTY LIBRARY HEADQUARTERS 

The following county librarians are to be congratulated on new headquarters : 
Miss Lea of Contra Costa County, who now has quarters in the newly erected Hall 
of Records ; Miss Jackson of Tuolumne County, who has recently moved into the 
new Veterans' Memorial Hall ; Mrs. Eudey of Amador County, who on May 24, 
1933, presided at the dedication of a new building especially erected for the Amador 
County Library.

QUARTERLY NOTES 

On April 22 Miss Gillis attended a 
council meeting of the School Librarians 
Association, Northern District, in San 
Francisco. On May 22 she talked over 
KGO on the State Librai-y and the county 
librarie.s. This was one of a series of 
broadcasts entitled "Highlights and Per- 
sonalities of Western Literature," given 
under the auspices of the League of 
Western Writers. Members of the State 
Library stalf Avere able to hear Miss 
Gillis on a radio installed for the purpose 
in the staff room. 

Miss Gillis, Miss Hitt and Mrs. Hen- 
shall attended the annual convention of 
the county librarians in Oakland April !>. 
Miss Gillis and Miss Hitt remained for 
the first day of the California Library 
Association meeting, and Miss Munson, 
Miss Duff and Mrs. Costello were in 
Oakland for the entire C. L. A. session. 

Mrs. Henshall and Miss Taylor repre- 
sented the State Library at the dedication 
of the Amador County Librai-y building 
on May 24 and Mrs. Henshall appeared 
on the program. 

There have been a number of resigna- 
tions from the staff during the quarter, 
some of which have already become effec- 
tive. Miss Helen Myra Maughmer re- 
signed the first of May to marry Mr. 
Nelson Meredith Mekeel. On May 31 



Mr. Harry Simons retired from State 
service for disability. Mrs. Marjorie 
Degner resigned June 30 as she and her 
husband are going to Oregon to live. Miss 
Florence Lamb, who has been with the 
State Library for more than twenty years, 
is announcing her engagement to INIr. 
George Rothney of Live Oak, Sutter 
County. Miss Lamb's resignation will 
take effect July 31. Miss Eudora Ga- 
routte voluntarily retired from State serv- 
ice June 30 after thirty-four years of 
work on the staff of the State Library. 
Miss Garoutte entered the State Library 
in 1899, during the first year of Mr. 
Gillis' term as State Librarian. There 
was no California Department at the time 
and Miss Garoutte has had the responsi- 
bility of that phase of the work since its 
inception. 

Because of the reduction of over $77,- 
000 in the State Library budget for the 
next biennium the vacancies mentioned 
above have not been filled. A number of 
additional changes are also made neces- 
sary by the reduced budget. The posi- 
tion of Intermediate Stenographer-c^erk 
which was occupied by Mrs. Gwendolyn 
Brannely was abolished in May, and three 
positions in the Repair Department that 
had been set up temporarily for two 
years were also abolished on June 30. 
This placed Mrs. Cartwright, Miss Shultz,

REFERENCE SECTION 

Beixlaii Mijmm, Supervising Librarian. 

The Reference Section furnishes infor- 
mation to any inquirer. It furnishes 
books to public libraries on request of 
the librarian, and to any other educa- 
tional institution on request of its official 
head or its librarian ; to individuals 
through the signature of a State officer, 
of the librarian of the local library or 
of the official head of any other educa- 
tional institution or on receipt of a $5.00 
deposit ; to a club on request of its presi- 
dent, secretary or librarian. 

A cut of about 55 per cent in the 
fund for general books exclusive of con- 
tinuations for the next biennium will 
mean a decided decrease in the number 
of new books purchased and a correspond- 
ing curtailment of State Library service 
to other libraries. We therefore urge 
librarians to remember and to suggest to 
patrons that the State Libraiy has a 
splendid collection of older books, that we 



vol. 28, no. 3]

can supply information on questions of 
art, history, literature and so on, but that 
we can not be counted on for all the titles 
of popular interest that will appear dur- 
ing the next two years. 

There will be no change in the plan of 
paying ti'ansportation charges. The State 
Librai-j' will continue to pay one way, 
expecting the borrowing library to pay 
the return. 

ORDER SECTION 

Myrtle Ruhl., Supervising Librarian. 

During April, May and June, 22.32

CALIFORNIA SECTION

The California Section aims to have a 
thoroughly good collection of books on the 
history and description, resources and 
industries of the State, as well as the 
works of California authors in all depart- 
ments of literature. These are made ac- 
cessible by means of a card catalog. Full 
names and biographical sketches of Cali- 
fornia authors, artists, musicians, pio- 
neers and early settlers are being secured, 
together with their photographs. The col- 
lection of bound periodicals is quite large. 
The Section also contains over 13,000 
bound volumes of newspapers, a file of 
which is being indexed with reference to 
the history of the State. Students will 
be assisted in their work.

kept the prints acquired by the State Li- 
brai-y for several years past and now for 
the first time suitably housed and dis- 
played. In display cases can be shown

198 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



[July, 1933 



about fifty prints at a time and exhibits 
are constantly maintained. Visitors are 
invited. 

3132 prints have now been cataloged. 
There were 1385 visitors in the Prints 
Room during the past three months. 

During April the exhibit in the Prints 
Room consisted of drawings and etchings 
by Emil Kosa, Jr. In May water colors 
and block prints by Chiura Obata, Jap- 
anese artist of San Francisco, were shown 
through the courtesy of Courvoisier's Gal- 
lerv. Linoleum block prints of Ralph 
Gallatin of Chico were shown during 
June. 

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 

Mabel R. Gjxlis, in charge. 

Embossed books in the various types 
are sent to any blind resident in Cali- 
fornia upon application. Circular and 
finding list, with call slip postJil, will be 
sent on request. Writing appliances and 
games for the blind are loaned as samples 
to those wishing to buy such articles, so 
that the different kinds can be tried be- 
fore they are ordered. Addresses of firms 
supplying all articles loaned will be fur- 
uished on request. 

Books sent to individuals from an in- 
stitution distributing embossed literature 
are carried free through the mails. 

Embossed catalogs of the earlier mate- 
rial in American Braille, Moon and New 
York point are available. They will be 
loaned to borrowers wishing them for use 
in book selection. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library. up to October 1, 1926, and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone 
requesting it. 

The .State Library will be glad to have 
borrowers who care to do so write any 
lettei's or requests for books to the Li- 
brary in Braille or New York point. 

Attention of the borrowers is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside 
mail boxes and not left on top of them. 

Again we request borrowers not to 
send post card receipts or requests to the 
Library inside of books. When books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Books may be kept one month. At the 
end of that period they will be renewed on 
request unless the demand for them is so 
great that renewal is not feasible. 

At the 1931 session of Congress an an- 
nual appropriation of $100,000 was made 
for providing books for adult blind. This 
work is handled by the Library of Con- 



gress with the books printed at or pur- 
chased from various printing houses. 
The California State Library has been 
designated as one of the centers to receive 
the books printed from this appropriation. 
Many titles have been received and are 
reported currently in the list of books 
added with the note that they are pro- 
vided by the United States government 
through the Library of Congress. 

The first book was loaned June 13, 
1905. There are now 3273 blind bor- 
rowers, 48 borrowers having been added 
during April, May and June, and 53 bor- 
rowers lost by death from July 1, 1932, 
to June 30, 1933. Total accessions are 
33.758, as follows : New York point books 
2918 ; New York point music 188 ; Amer- 
ican Braille books 3146 ; American Braille 
music 1289 ; Eui'opean Braille books 4517 ;

CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES— ANNUAL STATISTICS 



In June annual report blanks were sent to all California libraries 
listed. Statistics from these annual reports are printed in this issue. 
Except when otherwise noted, statistics are for the period from July 1, 
1932, to June 30, 1933. 

Branch library statistics are omitted under the names of the 
various branches. They are included, however, in the general figures 
given under the main library. On account of the above, high school, 
public and other libraries, which are affiliated with a county free 
library, show, as a rule, statistics for their own books only and not for 
county service. 

In order to keep statistics given herein consistent with figures given 
by the State Department of Education, we have counted all districts 
in a union district as separate districts in ''number of active school 
districts that have joined county libraries." 



All libraries are listed except elemen- 
tary public school and church libraries 
and those which belong to private indi- 
viduals. They are arranged alphabetically 
by place under counties and counties are 
arranged alphabetically. To determine 
the county in which any place is located 
see list following these introductory para- 
graphs. This list includes locations of 
branch libraries, although the branches 
are listed only under the main library. 

Those libraries are marked with an 
asterisk (*) which are not free to the 
public for either loan or reference pur- 
poses. 

The following libraries marked with % 
are U. S. Depository Libraries : 

Alturas, Modoc County Library 

Berkeley, University of California Li- 
brary 

Claremont, Pomona College Library 

Eureka, Free Library 

Fresno, Fresno County Library 

Long Beach, Public Library 

Los Angeles, Public Library, Univer- 
sity of California at Los Angeles Library 

Oakland, Free Library 

Riverside, Public Library 

Sacramento, California State Library, 
City Free Library 



San Diego, Public Library 

San Francisco, Mechanics Mercantile 
Library, Public Library 

Santa Rosa, Free Public Library 

Stanford University, Stanford Univer- 
sity Library 

Stockton, Free Public Library 

The following libraries marked with a 
if are Library of Congress card deposi- 
tories : 

Berkeley, University of California Li- 
brary 

Los Angeles, Public Library, University 
of California at Los Angeles Library 

Sacramento, California State Library 

Stanford University, Stanford Univer- 
sity Library 

When a branch has a reading room, it 
is indicated by r. r. in the list of branches 
under county free library. 

The months after newspaper clippings 
are abbreviated as follows :

In order that the figures for circulation 
may be uniform, current magazines are

included in the total whether repoi'ted 
that way or not. 

An effort is made to have the statistics 
uniform in reference to number of 
branches. Any distributing point through 
which service is given directly from 
headquarters is counted as a branch. 
For example, in a school with several 
classrooms, if service is given directly to 
each classroom separately, each room 
served is counted as a branch. If a 
school district has joined and both school 
and community service are given from one 
location, such service is counted as two 
branches. 

Under county libraries statistics "school 
enrollment" or "average daily attendance" 
has been given in an attempt to show 
more accurately the number of users of 
the library. Similarly in an effort to 
make the circulation as given more nearly 
correct, some county libraries count thf 
use of supplementary books. Where this 
has been done, the figures have been 
given with an explanation of how the 
circulation has been kept or estimated. 

There are in California 4G county free 
libraries ; 6 library district libraries ; 4 
union high school district libraries ; 14(:' 
libraries supported by city taxation ; 61 
towns or districts with free public libra- 
ries that are included in county free 
library service (28 under Sec. 3, 7 under 
Sec. 4, 14 under Sec. 16, 12 under Pol. C. 
Sec. 4041) ; 68 law libraries, of which 56 
are county law libraries ; 58 county 
teachers' libraries ; 443 libraries in edu- 
cational institutions, of which 5 are uni- 
versities, 11 colleges, 7 state teachers col- 
leges, 364 public high schools and junior 
colleges, 56 private schools and other 
institutions ; 74 miscellaneous institution 
libraries ; 52 association or society libra- 
ries and 19 subscription libraries. In 
connection with the above libraries ar( 
4339 branches and deposit stations. 

There are 334 library buildings, of 
which 181 were gifts, and of these gifts 
142 are from Andrew Carnegie.

ties, the following alphabetical list by
